House Over the Water
Resting on a foundation of stilts, the House Over the Water floats above Blue Hill Bay. The home is situated on a steep slope. Its entrance is anchored to the terrain while the majority of it is perched on timber piers. Clad in cedar shingles, the front facade is mostly closed off concealing the bedrooms from the road. The main living area sits at the rear. Enveloped in glass, the room is surrounded by views of the bay. A glazed door expands the room to an outdoor deck. From here, a set of stairs leads down the banks where a series of seawalls are arranged into a beachfront terrace.
