Rustic-modern house organically forms into hillside in the Berkshires

modern-house-exterior

This spectacular rustic-modern house designed by Surber Barber Choate + Hertlein Architects is nestled in the Berkshire Mountains in Salisbury, Connecticut. Created to grow organically from a woodsy hillside, this home overlooks a cornfield, river and mountains in the distance.

The homeowner wished to build a house that would blend with the natural surroundings and feel indigenous to its site. Using a natural palette featuring stone and wood, the architecture was composed to blend with the topography, and to create a series of interior spaces that were in harmony with the landscape in which they were placed.

Materials: Douglas fir, red cedar, white oak, steelcraft, New England stacked stone site walls

The making of this 5,300 square foot structure involves the expression of the craftsmen that made it – masons, carpenters, blacksmiths and the like. Notable features include an open living/dining/kitchen space with window walls taking in the surrounding views, and an internally-focused circular library celebrating the home owner’s love of literature.
