Houses of Maine: Elliott + Elliott Architecture

Houses of Maine: Elliott + Elliott Architecture

Princeton Architectural Press

By Elliott + Elliott Architecture

“There have been many influences for us over the
years but the defining factor in our firm’s work
is that we practice architecture in Maine, amidst
extraordinary and ordinary beauty.” Although
it has become something of a cliché for architects
to say they pay close attention to a building’s site
and surroundings, for Elliott + Elliott Architecture,
residing, working, and building along Maine’s
rugged coast has translated not only into refreshing
architectural forms whose roots in tradition are
clear, but also into collaborative processes with local
builders and artisans, in the spirit of the shipbuilders
and craftsmen of the state’s history. Featuring six of
their most emblematic residential projects, Houses
of Maine
demonstrates that, in the right hands, the
rough-around-the-edges individualism and often
harsh natural environment for which this coast is
known allow for a balanced, serene, and vernacular
architecture whose links with the past create nothing
less than a confidently optimistic preview of the
region’s architectural future.

by local fishing shacks)

architecture or those who just dream of living there;
