WXY contemporary-exterior


The house is located on a 20-acre hilly site in Northeastern Connecticut. The scale of the large studio in relation to the lower main house required an alteration of the roofline and profile as well as a new addition to create a more harmonious assemblage.The house has a contemporary interior vocabulary that bridges between the traditional interiors of the original rooms of the house.The renovation/addition work included a new entry court and stone terraces. Work was completed in Winter 2006.Photography: Albert Vecerka / Esto

If you do opt for an alcove, line it with a durable material or use a finish that you won’t mind marring over time. Metal, concrete and stone, as discussed previously, are all virtually indestructible choices.
