New Canaan Residence – 23 May 2013
The New Canaan Residence is nestled into a lush hilltop site in this forested part of Connecticut. The house was designed to engage the landscape and immerse the occupants in the full range of environments that the site offers. What the completed house doesn’t show is its modest beginnings: this is a renovation of a 1950’s house which had a series of unsympathetic additions from the 60’s and 70’s, and whose owners originally wanted only a kitchen upgrade.

UConn Oak Hall – 6 Nov 2012
Oak Hall, named for the state tree, is the new home of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences’ linguistics, modern and classical languages, economics, and journalism departments, previously housed in two other buildings. Nearby Laurel Hall, named for the state flower, comprises larger, related classroom and lecture spaces. Collectively containing forty classrooms, the two structures strengthen the campus crossroads with a fresh exterior civic space.
