Ridge House is a private residence in USA that located in the middle of lush forest. The house is located in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, USA. The home is a 2013 project of GriD Architects. GriD Architects said on their website “Designed for a painter and an art historian, this 1,200 square foot house sits along a linear promontory overlooking the Potomac River. Its organization strings the more private program elements along the ridge: the bedroom, bathrooms, study, painting studio while turning the public elements: kitchen, dining and living to face the prominent view. The form of the building, two folded and striated standing seam metal planes, resembles the form of the well-known fluted rocks located almost immediately to the west of the site.”
