For their modern home in rural New Hampshire, Scott McCullough and Jessica Cook, both architectural designers, sought to update the New England vernacular.
Green building was paramount for the couple, so they incorporated a rooftop solar array, a heat recovery ventilation system, and a heat-pump hot water system.
A Magnum wood-burning cookstove by Sopka provides heat.
“We believe that architecture should represent current technologies and methodologies while at the same time using lessons from the past,” McCullough says.
Eastern white pine finished with Monocoat white oil by Rubio clads the interior, while slatted wood accents the space and screens pipes and ducts.
“Structure, rather than decorative elements, provides visual appeal,” Cook says. “The slats create interesting shadows and texture.”
