This house was developed for a puppeteer and director of an animation studio and museum. The client had purchased 40 acres on a mountain top in the Berkshires and had $500,000 to build a house, a road and all required infrastructure. Snow load was a major concern in the region. The completed house celebrates extravagant views and the garage doubles as a performance studio. The hovering roof and deep eaves provide protection for winter living as well as summer sun.
