This Weekend Retreat Was Built On Seemingly Unbuildable Terrain
This 900-square foot home is located in White Mountains and it is meant for a small family. White Mountains is a part of the Northern Appalachians and is one of the most rugged areas in New Hampshire, what with granite formations surrounding the landscape.
Instead of resisting the craggy, uneven land, I-Kanda Architects chose to embrace the terrain and faced the challenge.
The home’s framing elements were constructed offsite and consequently assembled on the rock using careful, expert techniques.
The home’s irregular, mutifaceted shape mimics the surrounding landscape.
The cabin was initially conceived as a weekend getaway for 2. However, during the course of the design process, the 2 grew to become a family of 3, then 4. The growing needs of the family required maximizing the footprint while responding to the strictly limited availability of granite on which to build.
