Bluff Top Elegance

Bluff Top Elegance

Marrying the traditional and contemporary, this house sits on a bluff above Penobscot Bay. The placement of the house, breezeway, and garage were dictated by the curving topography of the land. The white cedar shingles, asphalt roofs, columns, and gables are traditional, but interpreted with spare lines and orthogonal forms rather than the sweeping curves one might see in a shingle-style home. The cedar trellis on the orange-brown rectangle above the front entry is for vegetation that will soon connect with one of the green roofs planned for the front portico, living room, and breezeway.
