Middlefield, CTThis new, lakefront home, inspired by the great camps of the Adirondacks, provides a sense of spaciousness within a modest footprint. Local stone and timbers tie it to its site and produce a sense of strength and permanence.The structure is divided into 3 sections; the living room and garage wings angle back from the central section, to respond to the narrow odd-shaped lot, allow the house to address both the street and shore, and optimize solar orientation. The central section houses the kitchen and dining room with master suite above. Suites for grown sons are tucked over the garage wing and below the living room wing. The progression from entry hall, through interwoven public spaces defined by changing degrees of enclosure, terminates in the airy, light-flooded living room with expansive views.
