Located adjacent to a Conservation Area in Greenwich, Connecticut, this hilltop shingle-style home is arrived at from a winding uphill drive to a Forecourt leading into the main Entry. The various gabled rooflines define the functional spaces within. The “rear” of the house overlooks a lake below.

The shingle-style home allowed for playful interaction of forms, each of which helped define the overall composition. The curved Dining Room brings one into the wrap-around entrance Porch, which in turn connects to the Study/Library overlooking the lake. Above the Library is the Master Bedroom with its own covered porch. The Living Room and Family Room are connected by a continuous veranda overlooking the lake.

The Entryway connects to an Arrival Hall which in turn leads to the main E/W Hall. Portals within the Hall cross connect into primary spaces: Living Room to Dining Room; Breakfast Room to Kitchen; Family Room to Rear Hall. The Dining Room faces the Forecourt which acts as an enhancement to the arrival experience. Circulation is the key to both opening up views between key rooms.
