From The Observation Tower

From The Observation Tower

This spectacular modernist house was designed by architect Wallace Harrison for Nelson Rockefeller and built on a dramatic ledge near Bar Harbor. Harrison was involved in the design of many large scale and well known modern buildings such as the United Nations, Lincoln Center and even Rockefeller Center. Harrison was used to thinking big, not only in size but also in concept. This house is an example of that thinking and is primarily a great, dramatic curve with a lighthouse-like tower in the center. At the top of the tower this small circular observation deck offers sweeping views of the shoreline and ocean. Since this was the first modern house I had the opportunity to photograph, it was an important experience for me and expanded my awareness of architectural styles. Even though it stands out as a rarity in Maine’s largely traditional architectural heritage, it seems appropriate to include this as one of Maine’s great houses.

Queen Anne Triple Decker

Queen Anne Triple Decker

The triple decker is a three-story apartment building built primarily in the northeastern United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.They were built by the thousands as an economical way to provide housing to the throngs of immigrant workers coming to work in the factories and mills of industrialized New England. Generally consisting of one apartment on each floor, it is common to see entire neighborhoods made up of these houses. In contrast to their generally austere design, this triple decker in Worcester, Masachussetts sports a Queen Anne tower and some decorative shingle work.

With a view like this one overlooking San Francisco Bay you should be careful to take full advantage of what you've got. This homeowner did so by making this sun drenched deck cantilevered off the back of the house, right out over the water. Some built in seating and an inviting chaise lounge complete the picture. In fact this scene was so inviting that Coastal Living magazine used it as a cover shot!

A Rich Architectural Heritage

A Rich Architectural Heritage

One of the things I like most about living in New England is the variety and richness of its architectural heritage.​ Some towns are almost like an encyclopedia of early American architecture. This photograph taken in Wiscassett, Maine shows the fluted columns and ionic capitals of a Greek Revival church, juxtaposed against the (probably Italianate) house next door, complete with cupola on the roof. The overall effect of this architectural integrity and history is pleasing and inviting, and is a reminder of the importance of preserving our architectural inheritance...
