Pond House

Inspired by local fishing shacks and wharf buildings dotting the coast of Maine, this re-imagined summer cottage interweaves large glazed openings with simple taut-skinned New England shingled cottage forms.

5. To build over water Inspired by Japanese architecture and its emphasis on integration with nature, this house in Maine engages both the land and water elements of its lakeside location. The living space of the house juts out over the water, supported by 14 structural steel columns. This not only makes for an unusual living space, but it also lessens the house’s mass and footprint on the fragile shore. These 12 elements define a traditional Japanese home
