An active young and growing family approached us with a desire to create a home that would give the ability to thoroughly enjoy this serene landscape. They wanted a “low-impact” retreat with the capability to welcome frequent visiting family and friends.
Our site-specific design solution locates the home just beyond Maine’s mandated Shoreland setback and at an orientation that affords aquatic views on two sides of the home. Careful placement and an elongated layout gingerly navigate existing topography and native vegetation to limit disruption of the 6.5 acre park-like parcel. Straightforward forms, extensive transparency, and natural exterior materials work to further meld the structure with its wooded surrounds.
