The single-family residence, which was finished in 2007, was inspired by a barn built two centuries earlier. Berg Design Architects skillfully combine the traditional and the modern while creating homes with low environmental impact. The Old Stone Highway house features geothermal, radiant floors and is oriented to minimize solar impact during summer months.
Another major Berg Design project was the company's entry into the World Trade Center memorial design competition. The design calls for the creation of a walk-through part and a glass wall memorial engraved with the names of those who lost their lives in the 1993 and September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.
Where the towers stood, the ground will be laced with passageways and steps, allowing visitors to rest and reflect on the site. At night, the glass will be illuminated as a beacon and a remembrance.
Berg Design Architects create beautiful glass projects. One of their premier pieces is a black walnut and glass coffee table designed specifically for collectors. The upper sheet of glass on the table slides from side to side to allow the collector to place their personal treasures in the protected area between the glass sheets.
Another table design from Berg Architects invokes impressions of Escher's work, by converting to the table legs underneath the glass top, creating the illusion of movement when one traces the lines of the legs.
