Residential Architecture: Becherer House by Robert M. Gurney Architect: “..sited at the edge of woodland on the crest of a hill, providing vantage view points of the pastures and distant treetops..The house is conceived of three gable-roofed pavilions that provide a threshold between the woodlands and the pastures, taking advantage of two very different scenic panoramas. The one room deep, central living pavilion contains large expanses of glass along two walls, affording views of both the woods and rolling horse pastures..This configuration insures the space will be flooded with light at all times of the day throughout the year. A screened porch and bluestone terrace, running the length of the house provides a stage to view sunsets over the pastures while a manicured lawn and dry-stacked slate wall provide an ordered transition from the house to the woods beyond..” Significant glazing, agreeable views..
