Built in a Z-shape, this sustainable yellow cedar-clad residence literally bridges the landscape, which runs through and under the mountainside dwelling. Situated on 17 acres and designed with an open-air feeling, the vacation home overlooks a state park and the Housatonic River. It oscillates, in the words of architect Joeb Moore, between tree house, campground and cave. Two concrete buttresses, each with a chimney and a fireplace, support the home’s primary living and dining space. To one side, the master bedroom has its own perch. Another two bedrooms and a studio are nestled into the hillside. Below the bridge, an open living room includes two fireplaces, an outdoor movie theater, barbecue and kitchenette.
