Resourceful Design

A 900 square foot guest house located in the woods of New Hampshire's White Mountains. It's another example of creative use of space and maximizing lot coverage. Once again limited due to zoning restrictions, the architect had to design around the given footprint. The end product not only brought in elements from the existing main house but also took advantage of the natural surroundings. The home stands 3 stories tall and is full of windows, natural pine woodwork and cherry flooring.

Natural stone on the fireplace taken from the surrounding area.

The main living room with a cantilevered 2 story box-out window that does not encroach into the footprint however still maximizing the interior space. Another innovative way you can design and build around tight guidelines.
