House in the woods


We thoroughly enjoyed this Connecticut weekend home by Jendretzki llc and Harold Tittman. The material selections help the residence blend with its surrounding countryside and wooded landscape. The forms, while traditional, have some simple yet signification touches that give it a modern and timeless feeling. The large steel windows provide excellent transparency. Different roofing materials helps to break up the mass and give a new structure the appearance of age that many houses only achieve after a number of additions.

Stunning little country house - I like how in the first photo it blends into both sky and earth.
