This efficient, highly crafted, low-maintenance, four-season home on Lake Winnipesaukee features outside living spaces that embrace the natural features of the site. Affectionately named Camp Stew by its owners, the house will initially serve as a frequent escape for a couple approaching retirement, before becoming their permanent residence. Our site-specific design allows cars to be left behind at the east end of the property. On approach, a welcoming entry porch shelters the gap between the house and garage and serves as a gateway, separating public spaces from private ones. Even though it is comprised of cozy spaces, the main level feels open and spacious. The floor plan and windows are organized to take advantage of light and focus on views of nature. High-performance insulation, energy-efficient systems, and extensive use of durable and local building materials helped the project achieve LEED Gold certification.
