house by the sea

Cape Neddick, ME


High on the cliffs overlooking the sea, this residence exudes a sense of place - seemingly originating from the ledge that supports it. Jutting forms and crashing volumes are reminiscent of the relationship beween the land and the sea.



An irregular footprint radiates from the entry tower. Strictly following the client's wish for minimal use of structure and maxi­mum use of glass, the walls rise up on boll-bearings and effortlessly roll away. The second and third stories of the tower house the master bath suite. With a glass enclosed shower on an outside wall, the openness continues. The jacuzzi tub offers a 360 degree vista of the five lighthouses adorning the coast from Cape Anne, Maine to Newburyport, Massachusetts.
