Large Stone fireplace and wood finish anchor the living volume. This project is a new home on Lake Champlain, Vermont. Modern stick style was the vocabulary for this new home perched on the bluff over Lake Champlain. All the spaces were anchored by views to the water and circulation around the great room volume. Chestnut wood interiors and walnut floors provided warm and complimentary interior finishes. This ultra-efficient home is heated and cooled by geothermal technology with solar-powered hot water panels.
