This energy-efficient contemporary timber frame home was designed to fit its challenging site with steep terrain and protected wetlands while navigating the regulations on its eco-sensitive locale. The design is a traditional Adirondack timber lodge style that features a uniquely modern twist on the gables to accommodate the mountain views. The gables, dormers and bump outs have asymmetric rooflines that permit both mountain and valley vistas as well as views of arriving and departing skiers.

The property’s southern exposure allows for plenty of natural daylight adding high passive solar gains to the home. These roof angles, along with the rough sawn red cedar clapboards, work to give the exterior its distinctive look which is at the same time both traditional and contemporary. A unique feature of the project is its innovative ski-on, ski-off deck on top of the garage that creates a multi-functional outdoor living space with views up and down the mountain. From the deck, skiers can enjoy the views. There are also ski and snowboard racks, overhead heating elements, a fireplace and an open air hot tub on the deck.
