Green Mountain Retreat is a winter vacation house in Warren, Vermont. The house sits quietly at the top of a meadow with an open westerly view below. The client and architect focused on integrating the residence into the landscape as natural as possible and made any change feel like a selective edit into the existing terrain. The house is carefully terraced into the landscape through stone walls and concrete retaining walls, including a second-story metal walkway into the steeply sloping hillside.

Careful coordination with the conservation department allowed for select view corridors within the tree range. Vernacular materials such as hardiplank siding, sheet metal, board formed concrete and timber framing are reinterpreted with a modern focus.

The inviting modern interior is naturally lit with an abundance of large windows and tall ceilings. The level changes throughout the house are accompanied with bespoke finishes and warm accents including wood ceilings and beams, exposed concrete floors, and centrally located firewood storage.

Tall windows are strategically placed around interior spaces to provide optimal views out towards the mountain ranges in the distance and provide natural light to key living areas. The house also allows for strong ties to its surrounding landscapes with a bridge that connects its users to a network of paths leading up through the mountains.
