Text description provided by the architects. Located in a suburb of Boston, this house serves as a gathering point for a couple’s children and many grandchildren. The addition and pool house develop a dialogue with the existing gardens, allowing the owners to engage the outdoors all year, and creating a series of filters and frames through which the landscape is viewed.

Product Description:

The Newton House living and pool pavilions frame the landscape surrounding the house and enhance the inhabitants' relationship with the natural landscape of the backyard. Located within the Living Pavilion, a polished stainless steel hood at the center of an open kitchen reflects its context, effectively de-materializing itself, as it absorbs the various views within its facets. At once a significant mechanical presence, and at the same time an optical ruse, the two come together in an unexpected alliance.
