myMarvin Architects' Challenge: Vacation HomeBy Berit Griffin, Marvin Windows
This playful little home, perched on a wooded hillside in Pomfret, Vermont, has lots of personality.
Diverse materials and design elements are all arranged to create an open, informal, comfortable retreat in the woods. The design satisfied the client’s desire for a contemporary getaway, and the assortment of windows facing every direction capture light and views of Vermont forests and mountains.
More than just a contemporary “shed in the woods,” this home was built to be environmentally friendly and thermally efficient, thanks in part to Marvin’s High-R Tripane glazing. Marvin products used in this house included casements, French casements, Venting Picture Windows and awnings.
Vacation Home was designed by Jeff Stetter of Gossens Bachman Architects in Montpelier, Vermont.
