Contemporary house with vegetated roof terrace
This contemporary home is nestled in a valley near a river in Connecticut in the United States.
The elements of the house are integrated into the site of a way to deliberately blur the transition and the distinction between the natural environment and the building.
Rooms are situated on a flat roof, giving the feeling of being completely immersed in the landscape.

In this glass house, the landscape becomes the «decoration» for the rooms, playing with transparency during the day and night reflectivity.
