At Marcus Gleysteen Architects, we focus on purpose, craft, and beauty. We actively reinvent familiar residential building details and rethink the use of materials in exciting new ways. We bring the natural splendor of lakes and mountains directly into our homes through the use of innovative products, high-performance materials and building systems. From our design studios in Lincoln and Boston Massachusetts, we create houses, barns, and outbuildings throughout New England.

The Lake Point house is the first of three completed projects on Lake Sunapee. Its design and details update the classic north woods vernacular building materials of stone and timber. While designed to maximize the lake experience, the house is carefully concealed from the shore. The lake side of the house is a continuous wall of glass, capped by timbered eaves and anchored by monumental stone chimneys.

The Boathouse references the architectural traditions of Lake Sunapee while incorporating the latest in timber frame construction and dry boat storage.
