Nestled within a secluded wooded lot, the homeowners wanted the interior and exterior spaces to have a direct connection, and for the outdoor spaces and landscape design to incorporate the existing ledge outcroppings, mature oak trees and wooded views. On the inside, reclaimed pine timbers from nineteenth-century mill buildings were used for the ceiling, while interior walls were built with reclaimed bricks from New York City buildings. SIP roof panels, geothermal radiant heating and cooling, and photovoltaic solar panels were integrated into the building envelope to minimize the use of fossil fuels. 

Judges said: The house appears to sit comfortably within its site. We also like the rich use of materials and generous openings to the broader landscape.
