Cabin on a Rock allowing dramatic views across the valley at several prominent peaks
“The cabin is perched on a granite outcropping in the White Mountains. It was sited to project precariously over a steep drop-off, allowing dramatic views across the valley at several prominent peaks.
The structure sits lifted up on 9 hand-poured concrete footings, a system selected in order to tread lightly on the sloped site.
The cabin was initially conceived as a weekend getaway for 2. During the course of the design process, the 2 grew to become a family of 3, then 4.
We needed to maximizing the footprint for these growing needs while responding to the unique characteristics of the site, including a very limited availability of ledge on which to build.”
