American studio Cutler Anderson Architects wrapped the house around a large pond in Connecticut so that residents can watch birds, fish, and insects.
The main challenge is to accommodate a large pond. Architect Kathleen Anderson responded and divided the house into three parts, arranged around a waterscape. Horizontal cypress boards cover the outside, leaving unfinished weather over time and blending into the natural environment. A large number of glass windows are placed along the inner wall of the water.
As the site is inclined, part of the three rolls are raised to the ground to keep all the accommodations on one level. The narrow, raised sidewalk is reminiscent of a bridge to the studio on the top floor of a swimming pool in Oregon, providing connections between them.
The entrance to the house leads to the public area of the home. Here, the kitchen separates the family room from the south-facing open-plan living room and dining room and enjoys plenty of natural light.
As a continuation of the wooden façade, Douglas fir has a wealth of interiors, lining walls and forming doors. The wood gives off a red hue, adding “warmth” colours to the property to withstand pale painted walls. Other materials that are embedded in the natural environment include large stone floor tiles. The furniture is selected in light grey tone to complement this point.
The company has completed many homes in North America that make full use of its natural environment. Examples include a farmhouse in Pennsylvania that can be enclosed with large blinds, and Canadian homes located between rock outcrops.
