Architect Visit: Albert, Righter & Tittmann in Vermont

December 21, 2010

For this rambling family retreat in the hills of Vermont, Boston-based architects Albert, Righter & Tittmann took their cues from the New England farmhouse vernacular and the owners’ Northern European heritage (the husband has German ancestry and the wife is of Swedish descent). Firm principal John Tittmann says the team looked to the classically detailed villas of 19th-century German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel for inspiration, while the sparse, clean-lined interiors reflect Swedish traditions.

A winner of the 2010 myMarvin Architect’s Challenge, the project was recognized for its elegant and clean design, featuring Marvin’s energy-efficient tilt/turn and double-hung windows and French doors throughout. For anyone embarking on a remodeling or construction project—large or small—Marvin offers the myMarvin Remodeling Planner, a free, easy-to-use tool that allows you to create room layouts for your entire house using your own dimensions. Start with a floor plan, add furniture, windows and doorways. View from above or in elevation view (there’s also a budget calculator and scrapbook for storing your own images).
