Bridge House is a modern 4500-square foot home that lives up to its name, straddling the brook. “I started with a motor court, and the bridge evolved because of the structure,” said Brunn. “I could go right over the river instead of biasing the whole house on one side. Instead of a first floor and second floor, you think of it in terms of length.”
The architectural design exemplifies Brunn’s signature minimalist aesthetic, which he hoped to complement with an AV and control system that mirrored the philosophy. To realize his vision, Brunn brought in Michael Izatt of technology design firm OneButton, who already had a relationship with the architect, although it didn’t start off all that smoothly.
“It turned out to be a very balanced and discreet system,” says Izatt.
