Cantilevered in Cumberland

This project aims to take advantage of distant water views through endless glass and minimal architectural interference. The clients have a love of design and modern architecture, and they wanted to build a home that doesn’t feel complicated. They were also inspired by the romance of Maine. Because the slope of the site gives the location privacy and interest, Portland’s Caleb Johnson Studio proposed “flying” the home off the slope toward the view. The design entices visitors to enjoy the various layers of living spaces—from the motor court to the deck. Challenges included solving for the necessary structural needs of the extensive glass that showcases the expansive views.
