Residence – Enfield, CT
Located on the Southeastern edge of Mascoma Lake, the Enfield Project is inspired by the New Hampshire Landscape. The project is largely hidden by trees, and utilizes TORA shou sugi ban exterior siding, HADAKA shou sugi ban exterior siding, and clear vertical grain western red cedar.
With a small footprint, the cabin makes usesvertical space in the form of a sharp angular roof. Across the lake from the Shaker Museum, the Enfield Project is a modern take on a historic wood cabin.
Arriving to the property through a winding gravel road surrounded by greenery, a sense of place is immediately face. Additionally, the natural setting continues when looking at the all natural wood facade with sights of the lake through the branches.
TORA shou sugi ban exterior siding clads the rear wall connected to a deck that looks over the water. In addition to the read exterior siding, TORA and HADAKA shou sugi ban accent walls break up the clear vertical grain cedar in the main entrance and outdoor shower areas. Also completely cladded in wood, the main floor of the cabin contains a large window overlooking the horizon.
