Kuma Lodge

Our clients’ vision was to allow the influence of their exposure to the historic architecture of Japan to create both tranquil spaces within and a building form that would meld into the natural beauty of the site. The deep and bracketed hipped roofs create shadows and broken horizontal lines. The deeply textured siding and roof materials, natural colors and asymmetrical forms echo the picturesque quality of the landform into which the house has been carefully placed.

The house exceeds the Vermont Energy Star standards by using energy efficient appliances, a tightly sealed and highly insulated building envelope and uses high efficiency Viessmann boilers.
