Modern Architecture Meets Nature
When the homeowner’s designed their house, they had three goals: simplicity, energy efficiency, and harmony with the site.
They achieved their goals with a minimalist modern design, and an energy efficient home that achieved a 5 Star Plus rating by Efficiency Vermont. Tektonika Architects in Stowe designed the house with a wedge shape that blends with the site’s natural topography. The garage is a half-story down, connected by an open, covered walkway leading to the staircase to the main entry. Passing through the mud room and kitchen to the light-filled great room you notice the subtle widening of the space. In consort with the nine-foot ceilings, expansive west-facing windows, well-detailed maple stairwell, and natural stone hearth, this is a truly inviting space. A deck and screened porch off the wide end enable outdoor living close to nature.
