This house is an excellent example of Meyer & Meyer’s work transforming existing homes into classic New England shingle-style architecture. The owner’s program called for specific elements to be included in the design, including wraparound porches on the front of the house, a completely rebuilt second
north side that included a new master suite wing and library. The house sits on a high bluff with dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The existing cottage’s foundation, chimney, and several window locations were retained. A pool house, family room and breezeway were added five years later.

i.e. how much cheaper would the same design have been without the bridge (in your estimation).
and access, right? We didn't separate out the costs, but things to consider when figuring costs would include the extra structural work both on the house and on the terrace, the I-beams, the cable-rail system, the metal deck supports, the wood, the hidden fasteners, and finishing of the wood.

connect carriage house to main house
Nice way to connect from second story of house to rooftop above garage.
traditional home, a low-slope roof is typically seen in a modern design. The same holds true for the roof material. While asphalt shingle roofs are the most commonplace, a tile material is more appropriate for a Southwestern colonial house design, and metal might be the better choice for a roof in the Southeast

Photo credit: Scott McDonald @ Hedrich Blessing 7RR-Ecohome: The design objective was to build a house for a couple recently married who both had kids from previous marriages. How to bridge two families together? The design looks forward in terms of how people live today. The home is an experiment in
from outside to inside the house, and to really depict “flowing and endless space”. The house floor plan is derived by pushing and pulling the house’s form to maximize the backyard and minimize the public front yard while welcoming the sun in key rooms by rotating the house 45-degrees to true north. The

For this house “contextual” means focusing the good view and taking the bad view out of focus. In order to accomplish this, the form of the house was inspired by horse blinders. Conceived as two tubes with directed views, one tube is for entertaining and the other one for sleeping. Directly across the
the street from the house is a lake, “the good view.” On all other sides of the house are neighbors of very close proximity which cause privacy issues and unpleasant views – “the bad view.” Thus the sides and rear are mostly solid in order to block out the less desirable views and the front is completely
completely transparent in order to frame and capture the lake – “horse blinders.” There are several sustainable features in the house’s detailing. The entire structure is made of pre-fabricated recycled steel and concrete. Through the extensive use of high tech and super efficient glass, both as windows and
