A Vermont mountain getaway nestled into a heavily wooded site

Contemporary Mountain Getaway-Flavin Architects-02-1 Kindesign

Characterized by soaring rooflines and expansive windows, this mountain getaway designed by Flavin Architects is integrated into its surrounding landscape of Fayston, Vermont. This contemporary home offers complete seclusion, nestled into a wooded site in the Mad River Valley near the Sugarbush Resort. The architects designed the soaring rooflines to beautifully complement the slope of the property.

The design also enhanced the views through immense windows, perfectly framing a meadow dotted with native wildflowers. The dwelling was constructed with natural materials, including cedar shingles, fir beams and native stone walls. “These material elements were complemented with innovative touches including concrete floors, composite exterior wall panels and exposed steel beams,” states the architects.

The home also includes a sprinkling of sustainable design features. This includes passive solar heating from the sun—which is further enhanced through the integration of triple pane windows and super-insulated walls.

What We Love: This striking mountain getaway offers a wonderful connection to the outdoors through its expansive windows. Soaring rooflines helps to define this home architecturally, creating a visually stunning design on approach. The use of material elements of wood and stone brings warmth into this otherwise contemporary abode. It feels comfortable and inviting, the ideal vacation home—surrounded by woods…. Readers, what are your thoughts, any standout features that you admire in the design of this home?

    one thing that shows up repeatedly here are designs in which the ceiling looks like your floor. i don’t understand what is motivating this scheme. is this something that is being pushed by architects and interior designers? or are clients actually requesting hardwood ceilings in their houses?
