The Bridge House received a 2009 AIA Connecticut Built Design Award.  The jury commented, “The building is all about careful, artful siting. It has a taut simplicity. The way it sits in the landscape and the landscape itself are perfect. It is all about place. It looks like a big slab of granite, but
one that is not hitting the ground. The building illustrates the fact that you do not have to spend a lot of dollars for an excellent project.”

    Hate so say it but this strongly reminds me of the Belvédère museum in Friesland, the Netherlands.
