Stonington Residence is a renovated historic house neighboring a large meadow in Connecticut, USA. Initially developed by architect John Lincoln in 1945, the project encapsulates some interesting features: “Frank Lloyd Wright’s influence is evident in Lincoln’s use of stone, corner windows and a flat roof. Due to the nature of the materials and construction methods used on the original building, the design process was akin to an archaeological investigation, revealing the home’s unique details, and incorporating its materials and methods into a new design“. The outdoor areas-garage, swimming pool, studio and patios- were organized with the help of natural rock outcroppings.

As you step inside, you will notice how a stone wall acts as the primary organizing device and contributes to an original interior design. A variety of colors and textures make this place feel like a real home. The positive vibes of the surrounding natural landscape are allowed inside through extensive glass openings in every room.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
