Overlooking the Berkshire Hills and the beautiful lake located nearby, Berkshire Pond Residence is a fantastic weekend family members home completed by architect David Jay Weiner in Becket, Massachusetts. The dwelling “was conceived as a folded volumetric sheet enclosure that wraps and folds into itself to kind and define the significant interior spaces, and tie the property with the landscape.” Built strategically on a densely wooded sloping web site, the property, a neat cantilevered residence, challenges the inhabitants to discover visually the surroundings and spend peacefully their leisure time. The home’s style is both, sustainable and economical (in construction and maintenance).
The use of recyclable materials was a priority when creating the residence. Green attributes aside from the materials, consist of also a cooling technique, solar collectors to supplement the grid technique and a closed loop geothermal heating technique. The weekend retreat spreads more than 3 levels, delivering outstanding separation of the space. The ground floor is mainly used for entertainment purposes. An adjacent terrace acts as an outside space for youngsters. The initial floor comprises the social rooms, including a kitchen, a dining/ living room. Top floor accommodates the master bedroom, youngsters’s bedrooms and bathrooms.
