Mountain Home Refuge l Stowe, Vermont
The transformation of this mountainside home's interior and exterior focused on capturing the warm, southern exposure and dramatic views of the Stowe Valley and Worcester Mountain Range backdrop. From the intimate family room, walls of glass open up and bluestone flooring flows out to a new terrace anchored into the steep hillside and embraced by forest, sky and mountains. This recently renovated indoor / outdoor space offers year-round observation of the ever-changing scene of sun, clouds, birds and stars. Elements of water and fire on the terrace symbolize the life and inspiration of this rich mountain environment. The exquisite combination of stainless steel and sleek forms of the fiber cement urns, bowls and tabletop connect back to complement the simple beauty of the interior. Birds find sanctuary here too, as the house and terrace are surrounded by drifts of deciduous Holly and Viburnum laden with berries throughout fall and winter.
