On Thursday night we attended the 2011 AIA VT Design Awards ceremony and were pleased to receive a Merit Award for one of our new residential projects. This is a home in Jericho that sits on the edge of a small meadow.
The house is a three-part composition of garage, studio and home placed about a parterre garden and edged to the south by a garden wall and linear orchard. In the tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright, the house is a grid-formed composition striving to generate economy from the beautiful elegance of formed geometry. The structures utilize modest exterior materials to shape a traditional but elemental form in the landscape.
We worked with H. Keith Wagner Partnership on the site plan and landscape design. The photos below are by Jim Westphalen.
