Stay in Place insulated concrete form; compact fluorescent light bulbs; low flow toilets; Bioshield floor stain and sealant; recycled wood trim The LineSync Architecture Studio entry path winds along a stone wall leading to an arched entry. Curved roof line dormers echo the branches of an adjacent pine. Architecturally designed to be distinct from the 1850s farmhouse, the building incorporates state of the art energy saving features, yet utilizes vernacular barn board siding and masonry stucco for a blend of North American and European agricultural building styles. Designed to be a wonderful workplace, the Studio incorporates garden views from every station. Siding from the 1850s horse barn (located where the Studio now sits prior to its renovation by carpenter ants) is used for interior trim. A colorful radiant slab floor notes the playful seriousness of art in this building.
