Nestled into the hillside, floating amid the treetops over a stone and cedar plinth, the Little House celebrates the rural ME landscape and is a modern reinterpretation of the intersection between architecture and furniture in the Craftsman Style tradition. Making every surface flexible in the compacted spaces, the dining table folds out of the wooden shiplap wall, a lightweight concrete shower wall opens to the exterior for outdoor bathing, and windows replace art. Interior boundaries visually meld together merging the built and the natural, expansive views of the forest and Great Western Bay.
