Hycliff —

Greenwich, CT

Perched on a steep wooded site overlooking the Byram River, this home was built in the 1960s and renovated in the early 1970s by architect Paul Rudolph. This expansion and redesign opened up the primary bedroom suite to the river and woods while respecting the ingenuity of the Rudolph addition. An existing deck was transformed into a cantilevered bathroom, and interior spaces were reconfigured. A transom-lit corridor with a wall of closets connects the bedroom to the living wing of the house. The bathroom is accessed through a set of sliding doors inspired by shoji screens. In the sink alcove, two panels of windows provide an expansive view of woods and brook. Interior materials include pearwood, plain-sawn maple, leather-wrapped steel hardware, and white-glazed tile.
