Come Tour the Most Modern 'Tunable' Farmhouse Ever

Boldly claiming the title of the least farmhouse-like farmhouse of all time, this so-called Field Housedesigned by Wendell Burnette Architects and located smack-dab in the middle of the corn fields of Ellsworth, Wisc.—is both inspired by its agrarian neighbors and wildly different from even the most hip agriculture design project. Indeed, measuring in at 5,000 square feet, the single-box structure is sheathed in a zinc galvanized metal skin and looks more like an upscale lounge than a home, with lacquered cement floors, ultra-modern furniture—including one very cool wood-paneled kitchen—and what appears to be cinderblock walls.

Still, despite the home's rather alien presence on the midwestern cornfield, the design is still in tune with the surrounding landscape, revealing its clever design in "specific moments of experience." According to the architects, the siting, against a buffering stand of trees on one side and sun-facing south and east walls on the other side, works to "encompass notions of the house as a tunable instrument," creating opportunities for everything from "intimate conversations by the warmth of fire, to a morning coffee in the sun." Architizer has the full story, so do check out more photos of life on the not-so-average abode, right this way.
