LAKE HOUSE, OXFORD, MAINE
Architect: Alex Shkreli, RA, PACS Architecture

Located on the banks of Thompson Lake, just outside of Portland, Maine, this project included the renovation, restoration, and enlargement of an existing log cabin. The spaces were reconfigured to provide a more functional and open layout, greater interior/exterior connection of spaces, and framed views of the lake. In addition to spacial and aesthetic considerations, we also focused on improving the energy efficiency of the home by specifying and detailing proper thermal breaks, additional insulation and vapor barriers, new roofing, and a radiant floor heating system.
