Moore House - Sharon, Connecticut
The house was to face south towards a pond developed by the owners and was to fit within the landscape in a manner that minimally disturbed it and provided no exposure to the north. Passive solar design controls the flow of energy through the building. Mature red oak trees on the property were selectively cut to provide posts and beams. Old fieldstone walls on the property provided material for facing the concrete walls. Natural light is brought into the rear of the house via long row of skylights and even on an overcast day, one does not feel "underground" in any room.
