Client: Ten Hatfield

Location: Caldwell, NJ.


At Ten Hatfield, we wanted to challenge a living space as a place merely built upon the pretense of a traditional, systemized series of activities. In contrast, we wanted the dwelling to be understood as a place that promotes integration and conversation, a place that is intimate but remains connected to the exterior.


We believe that a home needs to delude the boundary between in and out, that it needs to be more conscious of its resources. We implemented this view with an open floor basement and a sunken garden, a ground floor connected to its landscape, a second floor dissected by a green garden, and the roof as a communal area to appreciate the views. The result of our inspiration was better proportions, more stimulation, less compartmentalization, less rigidity, less stativity, less repetition.
