The Challenge
To create a warm and comfortable contemporary 1250 SF home that harmonizes with its surroundings.
To design spaces that can later be combined into a 3400 SF home that fully optomizes views of both the lake to the west and the meadows to the east.

This beautiful rural site rises steeply from Sutton lake to a forested ridge that then slopes gently eastward toward a beautiful meadow.
Because of the lake frontage, the site is in a Conservation Overlay area that creates intricate over-lapping code requirements.

This virtual model represents concepts created for the Preliminary Design of the Phase One Guest House.

This single level "Guest House" features a large sunken Greatroom with masonry fireplace and window wall facing views of Sutton Lake.
Along with the Greatroom, the roomy Dining Room shares direct access to the Kitchen with a large window wall which looks out over the meadows to the east
The temporary Master Suite, which will become an exercise room in Phase Three, features window walls to both the lake on the west and the meadow to the east.
The Bathroom is located next to the temporary Master Suite is hidden from the Greatroom by the fireplace and will, in Phase Three, serve as a powder room for guests.
All of the major rooms has direct access to outside decks either on the west or east.
The deck west of the Bedroom is covered and may be enclosed as a screened porch.

Greatroom looking through the Livingroom toward the Kitchen.
The clients requested high ceilings in all rooms and the Dining Room and Bedroom have 9 ft ceilings.
The Livingroom has a 14 ft ceiling, and the Kitchen a 13 ft ceiling... both allowing high windows to maximize views and bring in more natural light.
A soffit system with a 7'ceiling follows the the transition areas providing mounting for down lighting and creating contrast with the adjacent high ceilings.
