Resting on a rocky ledge in rural Massachusetts, the Berkshire House puts a loft apartment in amongst the trees. The site's biggest obstacle became the home's main feature, turning an existing boulder into the foundation — a choice that raised the focus from the forest floor to the treetops. This view is highlighted in the main living area thanks to full-height windows, encasing the room on three sides. These windows not only saturate the interior in the surrounding nature but also expands the modest interior out into its forest setting by way of a cantilevered deck.
