New Federal House - Cooperstown, NY

In their design for this new stone house, Fairfax & Sammons have created a fitting centrepiece to a working sporting estate, which restores faith in traditional architectural and rural values. With its hierarchy of spaces and functions, traditional architectural language, and strong relationship to the landscape, Farmlands, as the house is called, is a rural retreat conceived in the manner of earlier country houses, whose owners identified with the land and the pleasures of outdoor pursuits. With its pair of flanking Palladian windows in round-arched recesses framing similar vistas for the dining room and library, this elevation is particularly resonant of the work of architects of the Federal period, such as Latrobe and Bulfinch.
