This house designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson caught my attention for two key reasons. For its aesthetic and location. Edge House was commissioned by the clients to be perched atop a hill on their property in Kent, Connecticut. The town of Kent is only a short drive from where I grew, and where I still spend a large portion of my summers. A long wall that protects the front yard from the neighboring property is a particularly strong element. It helps visually counterweight the section of the house jutting out over the hill.
