Rural property in New Hampshire with rolling terrain. The existing house will be demolished to make room for the new structure. The planned residence is predominantly a summer and weekend house but the owner wishes to be able to use it all year round.
The house may be designed up to 5,000 square feet with the possibility of 3 floors. The owner, however, is amenable to a pavilion concept to accommodate separate guest bedrooms.
-The roofs need to be pitched for easy snow removal
-All elements should be geared towards easy maintenance
-The best views are towards the South and West
-The living room, dining room and kitchen could be located on the second floor to maximize views.
-They should have an easy flow but not be a Great Room. The master bedroom would also be located on the same floor.
-The rest of the house should include an elevator, 3 more guest bedrooms with bathrooms, one staff room with bathroom, a library, meditation room/area and a screened porch.
-The existing swimming pool may be relocated and given an infinity edge.
-Site Plan along with preliminary floor plans, elevations, perspectives, cross sections, and any other scaled drawings you feel will be able to better represent the design.
