Inspired by a wood-covered bridge spanning the nearby falls, this house springs from a rolling hill. Joeb Moore, AIA, organized it as two L-shaped pieces that lock together to form a living/dining bridge over an open meadow, and then turn to contain a master suite that floats 15 feet in the air. “Look to the right on the bridge, and the hill under you is landscaped with flowers,” Moore says. “To the left is a much more distant view to the Housatonic River and Kent Falls.” That “viewing chamber” idea repeats in cross-section. Where the two volumes lock, they produce a skylit gap on each side of the chimney masses, creating a clear view through the house. Our judges praised the building as a sculptural object that “engages beautifully with the site and topography.” —Cheryl Weber, LEED AP
