Weston Meadow

Weston, MA

This house is set on rolling agricultural land with expansive views of a large, historic meadow. One challenge of the site, the north facing slope, was met by keeping the long axis of the house as shallow as possible, thereby allowing southern light to enter the rooms that are oriented towards the northern view. The house is rendered in Wissahickon Shist, Vermont Slate, copper, and sustainably harvested wood. The mechanical and electrical systems were designed to maintain the highest levels of efficiency and indoor environmental quality. The entire house is heated and cooled by an earth coupled heat pump system.
