Leaving Manhattan behind, homeowner Betty Spence decided to build her dream house on a rugged piece of land in the Housatonic River Valley, in the agricultural town of Cornwall, Connecticut—a Feng Shui-informed retreat utilizing natural materials in harmony with its surroundings; a composition of simple modern lines and bold colors. After a false start with an architect who turned out not to share her vision and part of the foundation already poured, the task was challenging.Save this picture!© Halkin Mason PhotographyRecommended ProductsSkylightsLAMILUXFlat Roof Exit Comfort DuoFiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationSkylightsFAKROWooden pivot roof windows FYP-V proSkyFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsBetty wanted a simple design with an efficient footprint for this house: the focus being a sequence of outdoor and indoor spaces moving through an intimate sunny kitchen garden and up a covered walkway, revealing layers of expansive views from the dramatic interior to the woods beyond.Save this picture!© Halkin Mason PhotographyWe created views from the house to focus on the sloped site’s scattered stone outcroppings, towering trees, wetlands, and abundant wildlife. The house stylistically references local agricultural sheds, using red cedar for its exterior and roof decking, fir framing, and a red standing seam metal roof.  On its south side, rock outcrops shelter a sustainable garden of organic vegetables and flowers on raised beds. The wraparound deck of Ipe wood overlooks a stunning vista dotted with bird feeders and the occasional visiting bear. Save this picture!© Halkin Mason PhotographyTucked into the hillside, the front entrance opens onto the second floor, with wide plank ash floors and expansive main living areas. A brightly colored kitchen lead to a wall of glass doors with a porch beyond, while the adjacent living room is intimate, with a wood fired stove and snug, enclosing walls with high windows. The high ceilings and windows of varying heights enliven the spaces with shadows, enriching the interior throughout the day and seasons. The natural wood finishes continue through the kitchen with brightly colored custom cabinets, crushed glass countertops, and radiant heated flooring—creating a sense of warmth and peace.Save this picture!© Halkin Mason PhotographyThe private, intimate living quarters below were re-imagined as a modern, Scandinavian-style interior with simple lines, natural elements, and playful accents of bright color.  Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessNew wing of the Charleroi Museum of Photography / L’Escaut ArchitecturesArticlesTown Hall and Health Center / Henning Larsen ArchitectsArticles Share ArchDaily CopyHouses•Cornwall, United States Year:  Architects: Metcalfe Architecture & Design Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img CopyAbout this officeMetcalfe Architecture & DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodHouses3D ModellingCornwallUnited StatesPublished on September 04, 2012Cite: “Spence House / Metcalfe Architecture & Design” 04 Sep 2012.
