This project involves the design of four small cabins on a lakeside in Maine. Each cabin is organized to step down the slope of the hillside toward the water, parallel with the surrounding grade. Large pocketing doors slide away and disappear, allowing the exterior to flow through the interior space. The material palette for both the inside and outside of the cabins matches the materials of the site: stone and wood, supporting a weathered copper roof.
Creating architecture that responds to its exterior landscape and allowing soft transitions between the interior and exterior spaces is a wonderful design opportunity, especially within a beautiful and natural building site.
