Massachusetts House

This house in the Berkshires engages its wooded site through terraced gardens, a large south-facing porch and a wall of glass. The garden walls are to be built with stone salvaged from the foundations of nearby ruin, and extend from the site through the house, organizing the interior spaces along the way. The simple form of the house, clad in copper, cedar shingles and with mahogany-framed windows, connects the house to equally simple New England precedents.
