Caretaker's Cottage
Wharton Esherick Museum
Wayne, Pennsylvania

This is the design for a caretaker's cottage for the Wharton Esherick Museum.  Designed by retired architect, Mansfield Bascom, the structure reflects the abstract forms of Wharton Esherick's work.


View from above.


As one enters the site the structure is seen through a veil of trees.  Maurice Weintraub is working with Mr. Bascom to help develop the design and produce the construction documents.

View on approach seen through trees.


A simple elegant form from the front opens on the southern end with a wall of glass providing a view down to Great Valley.


View from wood shed.


Seen here from above the back and street sides are straight holding tight to the setbacks of the property.
