Location: Hilltop NW, CT | Size: 11,000 SF | Status: Schematic Design
Situated on a hilltop in northwest Connecticut, the front entrance facade of this new home is designed for maximum privacy with secure opaque walls limiting views to the interior. On the contrary, the hillside facade is fully transparent offering panoramic views of the surrounding hillside landscape. The design utilizes a combination of natural and contemporary materials such as wood and pre-formed concrete. The goal of this aesthetic is to create minimalist contemporary architecture with pleasing proportions, a subtle juxtaposition of intersecting planes and materiality, and a strategic positioning of windows that offer ideal views of the surrounding natural landscape.
