Arrow Loop

Maine, USA

The site for Arrow Loop is quintessential Maine: it looks out over a lobster pound, the harbor with much lobster boat activity and then on to the pine covered islands beyond, the kind of thing you can just stare at all day. The design for this new house started with 2 agrarian barns housing the primary bedroom suite, office, and living/dining/kitchen spaces and then the guest wing and three season room. These barns were cranked slightly toward each other, giving each wing focus looking through a protected view corridor.

The house was laid out on one level, with generous decks and porches to connect to the landscape. The barns were detailed with a simple shed roof geometry harkening to some of the barns and lobster buildings seen nearby and classic cedar shingles left to weather complete the agrarian imagery. The shingles run through the interior at the entry and central fireplace inglenook, with floor to ceiling glass spanning between the barns, accentuating their autonomy.
