Private Residence -Northwestern PA

The homeowner asked DLA+ to design a custom two-story residence on the family’s large rural wooded lot. The approximately 7,900 SF finished home provided 4 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, 3 car garage/shop, and space for the residents’ interests including classical music, sportsmanship, oil painting and mechanics. The design team crafted a program and concept to incorporate these spaces while maintaining the site’s wooded surroundings to provide privacy and emphasize the natural beauty. The lower level features an art room. On the main level, a music room and library feature a baby grand piano and the trophy room highlights game with a cathedral ceiling and authentic mortise & tenon timber trusses. An elevated stone covered terrace provides additional opportunities to take in the wooded vistas. By focusing on lifestyle, the project helped the family transition from their urban residence to a rural home in northern Pennsylvania.
