A harmonious bond with the landscape. Located in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, the Field House by Birdseye is designed to create an environment that maximizes its connection with its spectacular surroundings. Architectural massing and articulation conceptually extend the composition into the field while simultaneously integrating views that promote engagement with the outdoors. The residence is composed of two separate gable volumes: a two-story main house and a one-story garage, knitted together with a perpendicular exterior walkway buttressed with an intermittent full-height site wall. Featuring an introduction by the renowned architecture critic Aaron Betsky as well as in-depth analysis, sumptuous photographic documentation and detailed plans and diagrams, this volume explores every stage of the design and building process, from its conception to the stunning end result. It thus offers valuable insight into how an award-winning residence like Field House came into being, showing how brilliant design, thoughtful landscaping and a harmonious philosophy can come together to create a subtle architectural masterpiece.
