Houses of Maine

Houses of Maine
By Matthew Elliot

Elliot + Elliot Architecture is a Maine-based architectural practice whose careful attention to their surroundings has made for work that resonates strongly even beyond its local context. Residing, working and building along Maine's rugged coast has not only translated 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 Maine's history. Featuring seven of their most emblematic residential projects, Houses of Maine: Elliott + Elliott Architecture demonstrates that, in the right hands, the rough-around-the-edges individualism and 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.
