Description

Sited atop a highly visible promontory on Lake Sunapee, Soo Nipi House was designed for a brother and sister to enjoy together or separately. The siblings’ original house here was destroyed in a fire caused by a lightning strike. Shrubs, ground cover and a number of surrounding trees were also sadly lost. Now, native plantings are revitalizing the damaged terrain, while a granite and Douglas fir pergola offers a privacy buffer and shade to the primary living spaces. The interior spaces are intimate and handmade. Thoughtful details, executed in close collaboration with artisan builders, give the residence a subtly sculptural, handcrafted quality.
