Extensive use of glass can create privacy problems, but in this case, the largely glazed side of the house faces the ocean.
This house in coastal Maine features many of the defining characteristics of modern residential architecture: low, horizontal massing, flat roof, lack of ornamentation, use of modern materials and systems, open, flowing interior spaces, and the generous use of glass and natural light, most notably. The extensive use of glass can create privacy problems if you have neighbors nearby, but in this case, the largely glazed side of the house faces the ocean, allowing dramatic views and sunlight into almost every room. It is beautiful at dusk.
Architect: William Hanley, Northeast Harbor, Maine
