Quechee Lakes

Meyer & Meyer designed the “Downhill House” and the “Uphill House,” two high-end speculative vacation homes in rural Vermont adjacent to several resorts. The houses, each approximately 3,000 square feet, were designed to respond to the natural topography; as a result they fit neatly within the contours of the steep, heavily wooded sites. Both are unique to their site with much of their design based on response to the natural topography.

The Uphill House is approached through a beautifully detailed porte-cochère that forms the base for the porch off of the main living area. The house opens up to the downward views of the site and is scaled in a manner that is pleasing in size, detail, and color.
