Standing on 25 acres of agricultural land, Limekiln Line is a steel-clad shelter with an extended deck that leads out into the farmland. Its design was informed by local farmhouse vernacular and orchestrated by Lisa Moffitt. To reduce the home’s energy footprint the architects utilized passive heating and cooling techniques, optimal solar orientation, triple-glazing, good insulation, concrete for its thermal mass and low-energy appliances.

The house’s open floor plan interiors are light and airy. The space is arranged around a central island, which is topped by a platform that matches the extended deck outside. Clever, simple and extremely energy efficient, the Limekiln Line home sits lightly upon its pastoral site.
