Frog Hill

Washington, CT

Frog Hill is a modern interpretation of existing vernacular farm compounds found on a rolling, heavily wooded New England countryside where three generations of the same family share Colonial era houses and farms. The Connecticut retreat, clad with wood from fallen cherry trees, sits upon a beautiful ridge site with sculptural mossy rock outcroppings. Its optimal southeast solar orientation maximizes views of two tranquil valleys. A re-interpreted traditional Texas porch space encased by rolling glass doors tempers varying weather conditions. Concealed during long summers, the porch lets the breeze flow through the space and in winter, encloses around a fireplace that warms this ambient transition between indoors and out. Frog Hill was awarded LEED for Homes certification.
