Guest House

Situated on a historic 200 acre waterfront property, the Maine Guest House was conceived as a modern day carriage house. The Guest House is the first of a series of structures to occupy the site and is situated overlooking the entrance drive, historic garden and Tea House. The program is a modest two bedroom apartment over a three car garage and work space. The base reflects the vernacular architecture and landscape on site through the use of local granite and cedar board and batten siding. The apartment level is a more contemporary take on the local architecture and is finished in glass, dark stained cedar shiplap siding and steel. The house consists of intricate wood details combined w/ steel to reflect the local craft and rich building traditions in Maine.  (All design rights are credited to SPAN Architecture.
