Cantilever House

Vermont   |    2012


Cantilever House is a modern interpretation of the traditional camp retreat. Recessed into the existing hillside and separated into two volumes, the house avoids an excessively vertical massing while simultaneously creating a walkout lower level adjacent to the lake. Private spaces are situated in the buried portion of the residence, allowing the open, communal spaces to flow directly into the shoreline through the large glass facade. Simple, orthogonal forms, shed roofs, and a minimalist material palette lessen the impact of the house on the waterfront.
