Nestled amid Vermont’s Green Mountains, located conveniently alongside a ski trail, this home is designed to utilize the landscape around it. A deck with an upward sloping balcony serves both as the main focal point and as an opportunity for creative engineering. With large overhangs in both the roof and floor framing, and vast expanses of glass, this contemporary residence was fun challenge for our structural engineers.
Steel beams were strategically placed within the different framing levels of the house. These beams cantilever outward to support the floor, roof, and window assemblies. The result is both elegant and structurally sound.
