A former summer camp, this site came with a unique set of challenges. An existing 1200 square foot cabin was perched on the shore of Thorndike Pond, well within the current required setbacks. Three additional outbuildings were part of the property, each of them small and non-conforming. By limiting reconstruction to the existing footprints we were able to gain planning consent to rebuild each structure. A full second story added much needed space to the main house. Two of the outbuildings have been rebuilt to accommodate guests, maintaining the spirit of the original camp. Black stained exteriors help the buildings blend into the landscape. The project is a collaboration with Spazio Rosso Interiors. Photos by Sean Litchfield.

Once working drawings were finalised we collaborated with our carpenter to ensure that our client's brief was met. She has two small dogs and needed an enclosed space that would not make her dogs feel claustrophobic. In line with this, a selection of designs were suggested, factoring in the rigidity and flexibility of the materials being used and the space available.
