It is designed for an active couple in their seventies who are always visited by their family. Because of this, the design is centered on family events and the outdoors. The project consists of the main house and an outbuilding which contains a dwelling and a workshop. The roof of the home extends at the end of the main house to make a pergola for an outdoor patio. This home is located in a meadow at the edge of the ocean.The location provides spectacular views of Graves Island and the Tancooks which is ideal for the retiring couple and their extended family. Green roofs which are visible from the studio, connect the home to its meadow setting.The project is consisting of the main house and a guest studio/garage. One can get glimpses of the dramatic ocean views through the glulam structure that emerges from the interior of the house. For those who love to spend time outdoors, there is a pergola with a seating area. This is the dining area which is located behind the living room. It features floor-to-ceiling windows that provide ocean views. Separate tables have been set up so that one can be used as games tables while the other as a dining table. The dramatic view unfolds along the south and east elevation from inside the home. The concrete floor in the interior extends out to an extensive patio. There is also a stone element that houses the indoor and outdoor fireplace. Inside the main house is a large open room that contains the living room, dining area, and kitchen. A stone fireplace surround, which has built-in firewood storage, adds a natural aura in the room. The kitchen has minimalist white cabinets that are paired with wood counters to create a contemporary appearance. Well, like what we always say, when wood and white are combined together, it will no doubt look awesome! Seen here a photo of the wood posts and beams that are used through the structure of the house.
