Rural Retreat Estate, Litchfield County
Conceived as a collection of buildings arranged as a small village, this rustic retreat is designed as a family compound for entertaining and enjoying the countryside. Each building contains a different programmatic element and expresses itself independently. The building forms take their cues from traditional agrarian, cottage and shaker buildings. Materials are left simple, raw, and unfinished. Stone and wood from the site were utilized where possible.
