New Georgian Residence - Washington, CT

The ruggedness of the site led the architects to look at Scottish precedent in establishing the character of the design, and much of the detailing and proportioning is inspired by the Scottish Palladian architect William Adam, author of Vitruvius Scotticus, and father of the his more famous sons. The robust, late baroque flourishes found in Adam’s work allows the house to establish its presence in the landscape while providing a an expression of the owner’s own knowledgeable interest in the classical language of architecture. The materials were chosen for their texture: handmade brick with burned headers contrasting with substantially detailed stone cornices, chimney caps and finials. Inside, paneled rooms have far reaching views across the landscape.
