Bedford Residence

For this renovation of a 1950′s house in the town of Bedford, JSA collaborated with Balmori Associates to create a scheme that weaves interior and exterior together by juxtaposing materials, surfaces, and planting. Inside the house’s cedar-clad shell, a folding white liner links the multi-leveled spaces. The surface visually extends outdoors along a paved walk, finally folding itself up into the dramatic structure of the poolhouse. Linking architecture to landscape, a stacked bluestone wall brackets the Pool House, disappearing into the hill on one end while slowly folding itself into the pool on the other end. A pattern of vegetation sweeps across the property, linking front yard to back in one continuous gesture.
