Roxbury House

The Team



  • Roxbury, Connecticut

The Roxbury House marries art and landscape in intimate and broad moments.

Positioned uphill and on the edge of the 12-acre property, the space takes strategic advantage of prevailing winds for natural ventilation and to minimize site disturbance, allowing the existing open meadow and forest to support local wildlife and native vegetation. The undulating roofs and deep overhangs simultaneously draw in sunlight and frame landscape views while also reducing direct glare and solar heat gain. The exterior, clad in Clear Grade Western Red Cedar is naturally decay resistant, bug resistant and maintenance-free. Inside, the wood walls & ceilings have a gray finish to provide the vaulted spaces with a soothing color & texture.
