This modern, shingle-clad home features a lead-coated copper roof set to overlook a wetlands conservation area. The expansive Marvin windows on the ground level offer views of this conservation area, while the second-story windows bring natural light in as they overlook a two-story gallery. The construction site for this home was very tight. Despite being located on a two-acre plot, restrictions had to be met to preserve the surrounding wetlands. Inside, a double-height lantern illuminates several areas of the home, working in harmony with natural light brought in from the north. Marvin windows and doors offered the range of large glass and smaller, functional units necessary for both ventilation and light diffusion throughout the home.
