this dramatic perspective of Lily
Pond House highlights the structure’s
Modern heritage: dissolved corners,
sun screens, and strong geometry.
The nearby beach, a popular spot for
surfers, offers the ever-present sound
of waves crashing on the shore. The
entrance pavilion (facing page) is
differentiated from the main house
by its wrapping of zinc.
SIMPLE, SPARE, AND PERFECTLY SITED, A MODERN HOUSE WHISPERS ITS PRESENCE ON MAINE’S ANCIENT ROCKY COAST
