The East Windsor Residence is the answer to the question, “Does limitation yield innovative design?” Presented with a 200-foot-long triangular site and a 40-foot setback, architect Kevin Alter devised a sliver of a house that gently embraces the site’s shape. The three-level home features the kitchen, living room, and master suite on the top floor, with secondary space sprinkled across the other two levels. Its warm but contemporary palette of materials includes oak, marble, limestone, and a 16-foot ipe shading screen. “[The home] has a lot of nice moves to it,” one judge declared.
