Site Perfection

There are times when you find yourself with a ton of land and for one reason or another, only a portion of the piece is suitable for building. It can get even trickier when you're site involves waterfront. Here's a little example I found on the Connecticut shoreline.

The architect was faced with a limited envelope and the challenges of maximizing amazing views and allowing for as much natural light as possible. A unique characteristic to the design here extending out two stories and resting on a post foundation. They make the most out of the space and capitalize on those highlighted ideas.

Great exterior details from the dry-set, local stone to the exposed rafter tails.

A well planned layout to showcase the views. The two structures above are linked together by an all glass breezeway.
