New Jersey House 1990-1996 | Bernardsville, New Jersey

Our client’s brief was outwardly contradictory: a house that feels traditional but looks contemporary, a large, light-filled house with an intimate feel, and a house with continuous inner spaces but also distinguishable areas. The house, in a semi-rural part of New Jersey, is sited on a knoll that is both forest and field. Our design maximizes the views and experience of the surrounding landscape. Although many activities require distinctly bounded areas, the interior is fluid and contiguous, with one space transitioning seamlessly into another throughout. All the main areas are easily accessible to exterior spaces including decks, patio, porch, garden and pool.
