No structure is better suited to water than a ship, which was the inspiration for this waterfront home. The Sunny Slope is an imaginative addition to an existing cottage, providing stunning views and three floors of living space, all within a charming shingle-style design. The obstacle of this project was the high risk erosion of the property, which limited our design of the guest addition to a crescent-shaped footprint. Being able to fit a beautiful plan to this unique shape was an enormous, but fulfilling, challenge.
Connected to the main house by a glass-covered walkway, this addition functions as an autonomous home, complete with its own kitchen, dining room, sitting areas and four bedroom suites. Oval windows, multi-level decks, and a fourth-story “crow’s nest” are just a few of the home’s ship-like design elements.
