This private residence situated high atop a hill sloping toward a lake in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, will serve as a weekend and summer retreat for three generations of the owner’s family. The plan for the house consists of five independent suites sharing common open living, dining and kitchen spaces with a garden courtyard. The design takes advantage of the tranquil lake views while responding to the local varying climate characteristics.
The structure is conceived as a rectangular box apportioned and forming two autonomous yet connected parts. The semitransparent line amid the two creates a shield from harsh northerly winds, while the outdoor court brings an added dimension for the indoor |outdoor living experience. Other amenities include children’s play room, private theater, extended basement, and wine cellar.
