estes house, jamestown, r.i.

With the semi-solid front facade extending to become a pergola, the private side of the house bleeds into the landscape, and the glassy entryway stands out as a gate.

The rear of the house is nearly transparent. In place of gutters, crushed stone trenches channel water to adjacent wetlands. A study and a daughter’s bedroom occupy the second and third floors of the tower, respectively.
