We had a busy summer photographing several of our projects, including the latest to hit our website: The Narrows. This home is a coastal retreat nestled along the banks of one of Maine’s abundant tidal rivers. Our clients, a retired couple with adult children, have ties to the region and an interest in the conserving coastal lands. They sought a gathering place for their extended family and their love for the field on the property was a central consideration in our design. Our site-specific design respected the unique 600-foot shoreland building setback dictated by Maine Coast Heritage Trust. By positioning the home even farther back than the required setback, we were able to preserve the best attributes of the site–the rolling fields and woodlands down to the river–without crowding them.
