BRIDGEWATER, CONNECTICUT, 1980. The Chelminski House was designed for a family of three: a painter, a musician and daughter. It is sighted just over the brow of a hill in a forest of oaks laced with stone walls indicating its former agricultural use. The slope below the house has been restored to field. The house plan aligns with an old chimney and the foundation of a former habitation at the bottom of the hill. The large ‘inverted’ bay window serves to bring south light into the ‘deepest’ recesses of the plan.
