Influenced by Industry




A modern house in Rockland draws materials from its surroundings


drawingBoard3_wThis new modern house bridges the influences of industry and neighborhood life in Maine. With views through Rockland’s working waterfront into the harbor and farther into northern Penobscot Bay, this house is another example of how Rockland continues its progression into the twenty-first century without forgoing its history. With a lightness in architecture, this design combines materials from its surroundings—exposed steel frames, cedar shingles, white accents, and a gray concrete base that relates directly to the iconic concrete towers of Rockland’s south end.drawingBoard2_w
