A Georgian House in Round Hill, Greenwich, CT
The starting place in designing this new-construction house was to understand the site, including the westward view down a huge sloping lawn, the meadow at the front of the property, the drive in from Round Hill Road, and the existing substantial trees.
This rolling, open landscape of incidental views and features suggested a house with an English-influenced design, formal and symmetrical in each of its elements but embracing the landscape in an asymmetrical overall layout.Western views and afternoon light are dominant, relating to the property's open westward slope. Thus each room took shape in response to view and light and the Master Bedroom suite features an expansive roof terrace. Interior detailing is classically elegant. The rooms are carefully considered in regard to both their internal proportions and their architectural relationships to each other.
