This project involves the design of four small cabins on a lakeside just outside of Raymond Maine. The design of the cabins began with the idea of a pathway. Specifically, ideas were developed to group and connect individual places on the site, with each place / cabin providing unique vantages and connections to the natural beauty of the wooded lakeside. Each cabin is organized to step down the slope of the hillside toward the water, parallel with the surrounding grade. Large pocketing doors slide away and disappear, allowing the exterior to flow through the interior space. The material palette for both the inside and outside of the cabins matches the materials of the site: stone and wood, supporting a weathered copper roof.
