Berkshire Foothills Residence
The design of this large country house incorporates the nostalgia of an English country cottage and the interior of a modernist home. Outside stucco, steel windows and rugged cedar shakes define the aesthetic. However, on the interior the spaces flow together like a Soho loft. A massive fireplace divides the living and dining areas.A Bulthrup kitchen is completely open to the dining area. A soaring wood vaulted ceiling covers all and is pulled together steel with steel ties. The structure attained a LEED silver rating employing such methods as solar panels to heat the radiant floors. There is a round study on the second floor with a seating area which overlooks the dining area.
