Elizabeth Slotnick
taconic residence
This house is located on a high wooded lot, overlooking Twin Lakes. While presenting a two-story façade to the street, the steep slope allows for three floors of living space to take full advantage of the panoramic lake views. A screened porch extends the main living area and affords a tree fort-like setting up in the trees. A super-insulated exterior shell coupled with a Tulikivi soapstone fireplace ensures year-round energy efficiency and comfort.
