The site for this project is located in York Maine on a spectacular 3 acre ocean front property that has sweeping views of Cape Neddick beach, Pint Cove and the historic Nubble light house in the near distance.
The brief was for a 3500 sf summer house to be designed on a one story plan with focus on three main site views; the Nubble Light house, various rock formations aligning Cape Neddick beach and a rocky peninsular stretching into Pint Cove. The plan is composed around a square entry courtyard the various spaces of the home being arrayed around the perimeter. This allowed unique and different views from each space within the house. Natural cedar wood and a large stone wall and fireplace make up the walls of the home, white metal columns and a flat roof are juxtaposed against the more vernacular wall materials. The effect is a modern home that feels both cozy, light filled and unique.
