Standing Out in the Maine Woods
This Modern house sits on steel columns amid the trees.
Maine has a rich portfolio of traditional forms of residential architecture. Wonderful examples of Georgian, Federal, Italinate, Shingle Style, and others abound, but modern houses are relatively rare. So this dramatic house in the woods designed by Mack Scogin and Merrill Elam stands out and makes a strong modernist statement. Built on a steeply sloping site, the house sits on steel columns amid the trees. Building with materials such as brushed stainless steel, cement board panels, stamped steel plates, and glass contribute to the industrial, modern feel of the house. Unique!
