Orla Studios: Modern Farmhouse Exteriors

We love the high clerestory windows bringing light into great rooms and indoor outdoor spaces. Simple windows with just one cross member mullion.  Metal Roofs and board and batten siding are inviting with contrasting Barn Like cedar clad buildings as architectural forms made part of the composition.

Modern Farmhouses with Nanawall or pocketing type doors that can open up a room completely to the garden, are suited to Marin and Sonoma with the indoor outdoor lifestyle and feeling of spaciousness and comfort.

The contrast between the steel and glass modern structure and the textured stone wall creates tension and openess.

Views to landscape beyond through light aluminium windows and doors invites guests in.
