An interior renovation and complete home automation left this house not only more attractive, but smart in a green-conscious way. Fully integrated technologies manage the heating/cooling and lighting systems to create a highly energy-effective home, which was important to the owners. A new kitchen, sleek bathrooms, and refurbished woodwork, ceiling beams and flooring all lend an inviting sensibility and warmth.

Originally built in 1941, this 14,000-square-foot farmhouse was renovated for a family of five. The integrated scope included landscaping and terracing to marry the house to the land. The interior architecture and decoration accommodates comfortable family living as well as entertaining. A gracious light-filled stair hall sets the tone, while a completely new kitchen, mudroom, and butler’s pantry provide everyday utility via detailed, thoughtful design. Custom millwork and cabinetry based on traditional forms reinforce the historic nature of the home on the interior while the painted cedar shake, local stone, and fluted Doric columns framing the entry porch ground the house in the architectural vernacular of the region.

Sited on six acres of undisturbed land, this new family compound is designed to be a contemporary colonial-style estate. The house and auxiliary structures — a barn with an upper-story apartment and a garage — are connected via a glass passageway. Large window openings further blur the boundaries of inside and outside to maximize the views of the woodlands and Connecticut hills in the distance.

The scope for this 8,032-square-foot home, which is sited on a wooded twelve- acre lot, entailed a full gut renovation with additions to maximize the basement and integrate a larger kitchen and contiguous family room. The previously underutilized basement now features a wine room, gym, playroom, and bath. The first floor plan includes the new kitchen and family room, butler’s pantry, and mudroom, as well as the living and dining rooms. The master suite on the second floor was expanded and refined. A laundry room, home office, and a suite for the children complete the second floor.

New Modern Farmhouse

Greenwich

The design for this new home takes cues from regional farmhouses and barns typical of New England. At once familiar and modern, the seamed metal roofs and vertical and horizontal cladding ground the structure to the land. A variety of openings for windows and doors are distinctively divided into square lights to reinforce the traditional scale and contemporary application.
