Located on the brow of a hill, this collection of buildings on ten acres overlooks a mature forest, meadow, and pond. The house is sited carefully to maximize views and avoid disturbing the stream on the southeastern side of the property. An existing road leads to the courtyard, which organizes the Main House, Guest House, and Barn.
The house is planned with two axes: an entry axis through the foyer and living room to the terrace and meadow beyond, and a cross axis that reveals the circulation of the house. Like traditional lodges, the house is primarily one story with a continuous great cedar roof that holds the house under its wings. Steel and native stone acknowledge vernacular precedents. The outbuildings and landscape elements, whose design derives from nearby traditional farm architecture, rotate around the site and are tucked into the rolling hills.
