LOT #5 CASE STUDY
Design by POTESTIO STUDIO
Lot #5 offers a unique opportunity to develop a home with prospect and refuge. The forested natural resource area to the East, and Deer Hill wetland to the West allow for privacy, while the slopping terrain provides prospect to view.
Architect Rick Potestio proposes a design for a two story home with South facing “L” shaped plan tailored to lot #5. Long thin roof planes reach into the trees to draw in views of the wooded preserve and maximize privacy. The homes understated materials pallet of cedar siding, concrete block and glass let the forest take the lead. Generous eaves provide opportunity for indoor and outdoor living, while the raised patio offers horizon views over the Deer Hill wetland.
