Situated in a heavily wooded area in Princeton, New Jersey, this project involved an addition to a late-modern home with vernacular influences. The existing 5000 square foot house was turned inward, with little relationship to its natural surroundings.

Princeton, NJ – Private Residence

Project Details

The steel windows installed have more than double the lifecycle of wood or aluminum and are low embodied energy (low-e). This particular style is made from highly recycled material, and environmentally responsible feature, important to both the architect and owner. The choice of bluestone and jet mist granite was due to the stones density and durability in addition to being regionally quarried and fabricated. The laminated, low-e glass provides large panes and no seal breakage, reducing the infiltration and thermal loss through metal.
