The long-time summer residents of a venerable shingle style house on the coast of Maine wished to have a house on the same property in order to have two houses to bequeath to their two children, and to have a winterized house so that they could stay throughout the year.  The house is designed to be compatible with the historic house, but at the same time to express its modernity.

Since there will occasionally be big groups of guests, the bedrooms are small, with a loft on the third floor for children's use.  The first floor is set up so that the study can be converted to a bedroom, and the entrance, bedroom, a full bath and the kitchen are all on one level to accommodate a person in a wheelchair.  The living room is set down by three steps to follow the slope of the land and to relate to the deck.
