BLIND HOUSE, Afton, VA
Located on a remote corner of a large rural estate, this writer’s retreat was designed around the desire for solitude and individual contemplation. The oak wood skin is salvaged from a 19th-century hay barn that collapsed elsewhere on the property. Inspired by various regional vernacular structures such as deer blinds, the jalousie façade can be closed when unoccupied and allows views and light to be adjusted as needed.
