Sustainable home celebrates its landscape
“Interesting collage of materials, color, and textures which break down the rather large and plain mass into a compelling project.”
Beginning with a goal of creating direct connection to the site, Bragg Hill was designed to celebrate the landscape, while seamlessly incorporating sustainability. Through responsible design, the goals of the project were interwoven with sustainability and provided opportunities to capture breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, while utilizing those same portals to bring light and warmth into the home.
The architect feels “buildings should be bridges that form and retain connections to nature, culture, and among people, with a positive impact.” While new in spirit and function, this home design was inspired by the barn structures dotting the Chester County landscape. With careful consideration, the home was sited to take advantage of the natural terrain, views, sun location, and prevailing breezes.
