Patrick Farley Architect

James River House

Amherst, Virginia

Quaint 2 bedroom/lofted cabin on the banks of the upper James River. Simplicity and strong connections to nature define this understated biophilic home. Natural materials such as cedar and local soapstone define a modern but slightly rustic character. The home also collects solar energy for water heating directly on the roof and from a nearby ground-mounted solar array.
