Artreehoose is lakeside house Della Valle Bernheimer

Artreehoose is lakeside house draws inspiration from the sensation of being sheltered underneath tree canopies was designed by Architect Della Valle Bernheimer. Wedged into a tight lot along Lake Candlewood in New Fairfield, Connecticut, this new 5400 sf home’s form and structure was derived from observations of trees, sustainable building techniques, and the requirement that the structure match a previous home’s footprint. The architects used multiple study models in several media to investigate how light flows through perforations and secondarily to observe how certain materials would be suited to create a stable, discrete, but minimal structure that seemed to float and protect, much like tree canopies.
