Here are our further developments on the Island Cabin!
A plan is taking shape…responding to cues from the landscape as well as the owners’ “program”. It will be an intentionally small home, but carefully crafted. Please read about Developments on the Island Cabin !
These photos show our first “massing model”…a small, rough cardboard model that allows us to play with shapes and forms in a very quick, direct way. You can see the simple roof form that will be the dominant organizing element, but it pops up in the middle to allow south sunlight to enter the main living spaces inside.
Those round poles represent the trees that are blocking our precious sun! Filtered light coming in the upper windows should be lovely. This first photo shows the approach to the house coming down the driveway. The water’s edge and view is beyond the red line. All very rough ideas still! Stay tuned!
