The small glass block room and its prefabricated metal dome glow in the evening sky when the telescope is not in use. The simple volumes of the architecture evolved naturally out of the dome of the observatory, the triangular kitchen, and the bowstring roof structure, which frames the living spaces and master bedroom.

The interior of this refined getaway is finished simply with light toned woods and stone. In lieu of a larger house, the owners opted for a grand slate terrace on which to entertain guests among the outdoors. The retaining walls that separate the grounds from the surrounding meadow were created from stone rubble found on the site. This house designed by Studio Architectures.
