Black and White House

Burlington, Vermont

This Burlington home is a study in contrasts, with two sides that relate to their surroundings in very different – but complimentary – ways.

From the front, the home blends naturally with its neighbors, maintaining the character and charm of the streetscape. In the back, a modern addition looks out over the lake, with deep balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The distinction between old and new is evident as the white plank siding of the historic structure meets the slate grey metal of the two-story addition. This juxtaposition of white and black is cleverly revealed as one makes their way around and through the building.

On the inside, natural wood finishes lend an airy feel, and an open stair brings sunlight flooding in from above. The master bedroom looks out across a deep balcony, providing shade and catching the breeze off the water. From either floor, it’s an easy step outside, and the effect is an urban oasis.
