Bridge House by Joeb Moore + Partners


  • Project Area: 5,000 sqf
  • Project Year: 2010

Kent, Connecticut

Surrounded by an ecological system of cascading rocks and water, ‘The Bridge House’ by American architecture studio Joeb Moore & Partners has been constructed in reference to its ever-changing landscape.

Located in Kent, Connecticut, the building sits along a ridge that runs parallel to the Housatonic river and Kent falls state park. The geology of this area is formed by alternating hard and soft bedrock layers that eventually erode over time, creating a sense of ebb and flow in the environment. The layout of the volume was informed by covered-wood bridges found near the site, evoking the feeling that it sits loosely in the ground, as the suspended mass is projected over the hillside.

Spanning across the sloping topography, a connecting structure containing the living/dining area is anchored into the ground by two opposing concrete foundations. This key interlocking space opens on both sides to offer views of the meadow and valley floor and out to the river below. The interior rooms all have a strong interaction with the outside, fitting around the existing terrain. The Bridge House offers a strong interplay between the static and dynamic, while also providing a sense of retreat.
