Linkhorn Bay Residence

A fountain and pool provide a striking foreground view to the bay, rooflines call forth the horizon—a house in dialogue with its setting.

Published in numerous books and magazines including, The Modern Residence, Inspired Modern Homes Imagined and designed by the Nation’s Leading Architects, and Dwell Magazine

This award-winning modern home on the Chesapeake Bay is both beautiful and sustainable. A concrete wall and piers flank a modern entry fountain that extends the view through to a pool and waterfront beyond. The Charlottesville-based architects selected mix of Shou Sugi-like siding (charred wood) and composite Reynobond metal panels for the walls. Exterior trellis-covered terraces are limestone and visually extend into the interior where limestone banding is mixed with polished concrete floors. Trading equipment costs for envelope design, the house is super-insulated employing Huber Zip Panels and triple-pane German windows to achieve major reductions in energy consumption.  Design Partner – Allison Ewing
