I have recently been asked to join an Architectural Review Board for a local development slope side at Loon mountain resort in Lincoln New Hampshire.
Our company designs and builds lake side and mountain homes that have a decidedly rustic flair. Not primitive, but rustic in looks and organic material whenever possible.
The corner stone of a resorts homogeneous feel is that the homes should posses a general theme. We are not looking for everything to match, in fact diversity adds to the uniqueness of the homes.
As a group we really are only concerned with the exterior appearance of the homes. As a community we would like to encourage public spaces, porches , decks and patios where your neighbors can feel welcome to visit or wave on their walk.
The basic elements that give the ski homes Adirondack flair are the liberal use of Stone, a variety of textures in the application of siding, twig & Bark work, roofs, windows and doors. Lastly the embellishments in the choice of lighting, wrought iron and planting material are all key to the finished (or not so finished look) we hope to capture.
Birch bark and beams are a nice touch.
These are not supposed to look like suburban homes you see everyday, we have a strict maximum square foot requirement for “lawns”, a very defined area of disturbance allowing for minimum loss of natural vegetation, and a minimum and maximum size home that can be constructed on these ski to your door home sites.
skiers bridge to your home with snow making and grooming on the private trail that lead back to your door.
These are some of the photos of approved homes, and use of materials you are going to see in the South Peak Resort at Loon Mt.
Many of these Adirondack Style homes blend post and beam with huge stone fireplaces, which brings the organic building materials inside as well as outside.
