maine house - biddeford, Me

A wooded, secluded 7 acre lot in the sleepy town of Biddeford, Maine, just a few minutes north of Kennebunkport is the site for a new 3,000 square feet modern house for a growing family of four. The client's request for an open layout and division between public and private realms of the house led to an open floor plan on the ground floor with maximum glazing to engage the wooded site. The private quarters of the house are on the second level of two separate "towers", one for the family, the other for guests. The client's request for contemporary, sustainable materials also led to wrapping the exterior of the house in standing seam metal roofing, corrugated metal siding, softened by cedar clapboard in areas near entrances and outdoor seating areas.
