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.
