Residential Architecture: House on Chesapeake Bay by Resolution: 4 Architecture: “..a 50-foot ramp sets the path into the house. Offering a glimpse of what’s ahead, upon approach the waterfront is framed through the window of the front passageway. The main level becomes the soul of the home, with the entry, a large outdoor deck, and zones for living, dining, and cooking occupying the L-shaped space. Understanding the social imperative of the plan, the path continues through touching upon all social enclaves, leaving the voyager to rest upon the main deck and an idyllic view of willowy trees, running children and floating vessels..The initial design faced several challenges. Due to the site setback, setback from the water, and the request of the owners to preserve a large tree on site, the residual area left for a thin lot and a small footprint upon which to build. The result was an exercise in managing and maximizing limited space to fulfill function without sacrificing spatial efficiency or aesthetic..”  Extensive glazing, interesting fenestration, abundant natural light, views, multiple terraces, outdoor fireplace, indoor/outdoor sensibility, cedar cladding..
