Two AIA awards won for house I photographed

Architects: Gossens Bachman Architects

2004 AIA Vermont Excellence in Architecture
2005  AIA New England Design Award for Excellence in Architecture

This is one of the  most unusual houses I have ever photographed. The owner wanted to be in
a "protective environment to eliminate outside noise and unwanted intrusions."1 The entire house could be completely shut off from the outside using large window panels and huge metal gates. Skylights and a hidden garden were the only "accesses" to the outside.  Grass roof, healthy materials, and energy efficient systems, were part of the design, as well.

Don Hanson has been one of my favorite Vermont artists for over 30 years.  Thought you would like to see one of his garden paintings that I have the pleasure of owning.  It is an Oil on Panel, 10 x10. To see more of my long time friend's work visit: donhansonart.com
