High Altitude Mountain Retreat

High Altitude Mountain Retreat

The project goals focused on capturing the warmth of Colonial New England design elements and craftsmanship, while maximizing the views, at the same time being reflective of the mountain habitat. The remodel focused on creating inviting private and community spaces for family, and friends to stay and relax while enjoying the mountains. Other notable goals included building a house that was energy efficient and designed to accommodate the winters at 9800 ft. and provide access to year around outdoor activities associated with an active life style. Yearly snow totals can reach 400 inches or more.

Lake Michigan Cottage

Lake Michigan Cottage

The primary goal of this project was to preserve the historic charm of the original cottage while providing the convenience of a modern home. Opening the structure to bring in light and provide views of the surrounding site were also very important. The owners also wanted the design to address their concern to minimize the tracking of beach sand into the cottage. This was addressed with an outdoor shower, a bathroom that is accessible from the outside, and a serving counter between the kitchen and outside deck. Adding a space for a studio, kayak storage, and firewood storage were also key.
