Architect: Patrick Kane
This south facing house runs along the shore line to maximize views and passive solar effect. Becuase the building is sited in mature forest, to minimize disturbance to trees and thus the house is well screened from the street and lake. Squam Lake is a summer and winter seasonal camp that can sleep 20 people which is perfect if you have a arge extended family. There are three “wigwams” built for bedrooms, communal living spaces and guest areas.
The exterior uses zink siding because of its ablility to blend in with the mature beech trees. I think it is the first house to use it on a residential property in New England. Also, the building is super insulated with radiant slab heating.
