Munjoy Hill Modern


New Home on Munjoy Hill
Portland, Maine

The owners found a rare vacant lot on Munjoy Hill, and selected BRIBURN to design a modern, highly energy efficient home that includes a space for two cars, maximizes the available buildable area on the lot and has panoramic views of the City of Portland. A two car garage, entry vestibule and small workshop are located on the first floor. The second floor has a master bedroom suite, second bedroom, small office space, laundry room and storage; and the third floor is open concept living, dining and kitchen, a small TV room/office, ½ bath and outdoor deck. A stair and elevator are provided for circulation and easy access for the owners and guests. The central staircase is a focal point within the house, organizing the interior spaces and providing light on all three levels. The exterior finishes were chosen for their low maintenance features and to complement the modern home design, while making the home energy efficient through both the summer and winter months.
