Today we will show you the beautiful Weston Residence in Connecticut, a project by Specht Harpman Architects. This house is breathtaking. Not only the surroundings are amazing but the whole place is very stylish and cozy. From materials to layout, colors and outdoor space, everything is pretty unique. Certainly a great place to live.

Make sure to check out Specht Harpman Architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week :)

Description from the architects: The Weston Residence nestles in a valley adjacent to the Saugatuck River. In plan and section, the elements of the house engage the site in a way that purposefully blurs the transition and distinction between the built and natural environment.

As the house is approached from a road that begins high on a cliff above, the roofscape—or fifth façade— becomes a critical element of the design. Terraced planes planted with year-round, region-specific succulents step down the hill. Bedrooms project out into these roof gardens, giving a feeling of being fully immersed in the landscape. The planted roofs are also integral to the high-performance building envelope.
