Located on a small island off the coast of Maine, this project began as a renovation. Initially, our clients hoped that an existing building on their property could be rehabilitated: a structure that accompanied the 100 year old farmhouse that has been their summer home for close to 40 years.
Elliott + Elliott Architecture
Elliott + Elliott Architecture is an architectural firm in Blue Hill, Maine, US, engaged in the design and renovation of residential and institutional buildings. Much of their work is on the Maine coast and islands, and it is this extraordinary environment – natural, cultural and architectural – that provides their starting point and inspiration.
This 2,500 square foot house responds to the clients’ desire for a contemporary retreat, low maintenance home that is open and light-filled. Fronting Smith Cove, a secluded deep water anchorage ideal for boating and kayaking, the site is densely wooded with filtered ocean views to the north.
