Main house: 2005 | Outdoor spaces: 2013

This house was designed for a growing family, a home office, accessible guest suite, and space for entertaining. The site is a densely forested piece of land near the center of Guilford. By locating the house relatively close to the street, the bulk of the forest, with its seasonal wetlands, is protected. A cleared side yard, necessary because of septic requirements, creates ideal locations for gardens and brings sunlight deep into the house. The most public spaces are on the South, while bedrooms and the home office are on the more private North side. Because the house sits atop ledge on a steeply-sloping site, views from the top floor of the house are akin to those from a treehouse.

Awarded for “Favorite Place to Live” from the AIA CT 2015 Peoples Choice Award. Click here for more information.
