Panoramic Views and Indoor/Outdoor Living

This Norwich, VT, web site, sits 30 feet above the Connecticut River — hence the name “River House” — and affords expansive views, so when the owners wanted a modern property and setting to take advantage of the locale, they named in Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture. The strategy was basic: blur the lines in between indoors and outdoors, making for seamless effortless living and entertaining. Out of the style came the primary house guest home/boat storage building terraces, pool, and outside shower plus a placing green and fire pit. Approaching the house is a extended concrete wall — wide adequate for an informal bench — edging the walkway notice ornamental grass trim that follows it (and youngsters on their way to adventure, no doubt). Neighborhood boulders, as effectively as river birch trees, also play a portion in the natural décor of the entry.

From a concrete façade, the house’s walls echo the very same material Ipe wood decking surrounds portion of the pool opposite an architectural waterfall. Paving slabs are stepping stones toward the river freestanding concrete walls give privacy for the pool. The general shape is that of squares and rectangles — except for those whimsical curvy chairs and table, set up for a cozy nighttime glass of wine or cup of coffee. Lines are clean, basic, and sleek — and the indoor/outdoor mix is clear, looking from an interior lounge region with relaxed leather chairs straight out to a deck with a parallel lounge set in wood and plush cushions. Lastly, low-maintenance plants are the order of the day — thereby affording the family members far more time to appreciate a swim, a starlit river evening, and the warmth of a fire around which to collect.
