new canaan house
New 4,000 sq. ft. house designed to include an existing barn, which had formerly been used as a gin mill, built into a steep slope leading to a natural pond. By incorporating the exposed rock ledge and existing stone walls into the design, the rock is used as a barrier to a busy road and to create a Japanese type rock garden which can be viewed from living rooms in the interior. The house is shingle with a stone stair tower and base, new pool, around the rock ledge and a garage with a grass roof to be built into the side of the existing hill.
