Specht Harpman Architects surmount the Weston Residence with a scattering of green roof terraces.

Inside one of the terraces, a bed appears at the ground level created by its encircling grassy lawn.

This beautiful space is the guest suite upstairs.

Surprising transparency allows the surrounding greenery to be glimpsed through the house in orchestrated frames.

Steps into the house bring you to another example of transparency:

 architecture

…that even the fireplace is surprisingly surrounded by glass.

 architecture

With no obvious chimney, it is not clear how this magic is wrought.

Next to the living room, a pair of stainless steel islands comprise a simple, brisk kitchen.

The master bedroom has easy access on the ground floor, for ageing in place.

A fireplace does double duty in both dining room and the bedroom.

Below the guest suite, a clerestory window in the master bathroom also looks out at a grassy lawn at eye level.

 architecture

The green terraced spaces and the transparent views conspire together to even more fully immerse the Weston House in its Connecticut landscape.
