I think the most respectful idiom to consider when dealing with vernacular architecture is the intention. Your hands and ideas are the catalyst of the design and therefore must answer the conditions and guidelines you've set up for yourself within the larger conditions set up by place. The language which you use to develop a concept, idea, or design is perhaps the most important thing to settle before you begin your interpretation of the vernacular. Just because vernacular is a product of the indigenous doesn't necessarily mean it must follow the condition of the vernacular itself. The architecture traditional to place can be distilled or amplified while staying within the bounds of the given architectural condition. In a sense the vernacular has a chance to become something more or less while maintaining its respectful convictions. It becomes a way to preserve, transform, and add function without breaking its bounds, if that's what you wish to do. Vernacular is a limitless condition if you're willing to pursue its body without stepping on its toes.
