Berkshires House, David Hotson

This eco-friendly home in the Berkshires was designed by architect David Hotson to serve two functions– a private getaway for the client (a couple with grown children) and a summer and winter vacation house to accommodate large family gatherings. And it’s just about that time when the owners will have to start planning for their holiday get-togethers, which is likely a bit less stressful since the dwelling was built with these events in mind.

The house is perched on a wooded hillside that slopes down toward an open clearing. It’s composed of two long, parallel shed-roofed bars that run east to west, perpendicular to the site’s slope.
