Essex, CT

This main entry design features a covered porch and steps, a grand staircase, a dining area, an entry hall with closets, and updated lighting. The existing home is situated on a beautiful rocky hillside overlooking the Connecticut River. The house itself is a one of a kind elongated A-frame built off the ground with steel framing and structural insulated panels. The design balances respect for the existing contemporary aesthetic while introducing more traditional elements desired by the client. The end result is a diverse but harmonious blend of materials and textures that provide richness and depth. (photos by Jody Dole)
