A Maine home boasts sustainable living in a serene coastal setting

Embracing curves and angles that reflect the natural landscape, this beachfront Maine home designed by Woodhull Architects avoids straight lines altogether. The family residing here is deeply committed to renewable energy, emphasizing sustainability, minimal environmental impact, and energy efficiency in the design.

Taking on a floating presence amidst the property’s sand dune, the home was thoughtfully integrated to peacefully blend with its surroundings rather than overpowering them.

The choice of copper shed roofing seamlessly merges the home with the landscape, maintaining an uninterrupted skyline, even when viewed from a distance.

The shingle-style structure finds its framing in white oak, while steel railings and beams are intentionally exposed to the elements, weathering gracefully to harmonize with their setting.

Custom millwork sourced locally adorns the interior, promoting a consistent simplicity, while the children’s room features playful built-ins, adding a touch of character.

A connecting garage was designed to flow effortlessly as an extension of the living space rather than a mere storage room. This thoughtful approach allows for a seamless transition from one area to the next, both inside and outside the home.
