This single-family 1,440 square foot residence and 550 square foot guesthouse was designed to broaden the owners already strong emotional connection to the living world. The architect chose the site of an overgrown, man-made pond in an area of the owner’s farm that was not conducive to cultivation.

The house is located on part of a larger farm with portions remaining forested. The overall setting is rural. The design attempts to make the pond and residence a single entity in which the owners can enjoy and connect with the wild creatures that come to the water on both regular and varied schedules. To this end, the building was places as a bridge across the north end of the pond.

The site plan is organized so that visitors park their vehicles 150 feet away from the house. They then walk through the forest to a bridge crossing a small section of the point, and on to the main entry. The broad vista of the pond becomes visible only upon opening the front door. It is the hope that this experience will be memorable to the visitor.
