Nestled in a valley adjacent to the Saugatuck River in Weston, Connecticut, the Weston Residence by Specht Harpman engages the site in a way that purposefully blurs the transition and distinction between the built and natural environment.

“As the road leading to the house begins high on a cliff, the roofscape becomes a critical element of the design.” says Specht Harpman. “Terraced planes planted with year-round, region-specific succulents step down the hill.”

“Interior and exterior spaces are joined through views, portals, and material continuity. As with other glass houses, the landscape becomes the decoration for the rooms, playing with transparency by day and reflectivity at night.”
