Creative problem solving led to adapting the slope of the land and the home built upon it, maintaining a layered but unified layout.

This hillside home near Sunday River sprawls through layers of space. Its location on a steep hill called for a unique layout that would unify the home over those changing levels. A secondary aim, according to architect Caleb Johnson, was “simplicity of materials throughout,” which also created a cohesive look.
