Shingle Style House With A Twist
This house in Falmouth, Maine designed by Scott Simons Architects of Portland is a study in contrasts. The front, or street side suggests a traditional shingle style house with details that you might see anywhere in Maine. However, when you go around to the back where there is a sheltered and private backyard surrounded by trees, the house opens up and is very transparent. Large glass walls give the house a modern feel and the outside fireplace makes a great place to sit on a cool evening. The standing seam metal roof is a perfect choice. It’s a wonderful combination of modernist and traditional styles.
