Wooden Windowed Homes
The Sound House by Roger Ferris + Partners is Both Narrow and Airy

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jan 9, 13

As though made solely from wood and glass, the Sound House has an undeniable appreciation for all things natural. Whether that involves the warmth of the materials or the unobstructed view of the outdoors, the Sound House offers an organic existence that will prove refreshing every time a person steps beneath its roof.

Designed by American architecture firm Roger Ferris + Partners, the Sound House was constructed in Fairfield, Connecticut. Although unusually narrow, the use of floor to ceiling windows ensures an airy aesthetic that won’t stifle the inhabitants. These windows also offer a stunning view of the waterfront the Sound House is on the cusp of. Nevertheless, the use of subtle screens and wood panels ensure privacy.
