A contemporary farmhouse compound in rural Vermont and how it satisfies the differing design wishes of a husband and wife is the cover story of our May/June issue (in homes and online next week). In this picture, photographer Jim Westphalen captured the architectural geometry of three structures — main house, garage, and design studio — coming together to form a courtyard. Contributing writer Nancy Humphrey Case reveals the complexity of creating a house that reads like a simple farmstead, but offers modern efficiency and style. Also in this issue, admirers of Andy Warhol will be fascinated by a Rhode Island home inspired by the famous 20th-century Pop artist’s island getaway in Montauk, New York. Then, we explore a lush Connecticut garden that evolved with the expansion of the one-time A-frame house it surrounds and we visit a city penthouse where family and breath-taking views are center stage.
