Cozy Architect’s Home With Japanese Decor Ideas

Wed, Jul 2, 2014 | Modern home designs

Maison Amtrak was designed by architect Peter Cohen for himself, his wife Sally and his golden retriever “Daisy”. Located in the coastal forests near Ellsworth, Maine and just above the Union River, the design allowed Peter to produce the least amount of impact on the natural landscape and at the same time take advantage of the riverscape. The porch and the entrance are done in Japanese style, with beautiful horizontal Douglas-fir cladding in a clear finish, contrasting with the soft silvery grey of the vertical siding used on the rest of the facade. The interior is a mix of modern and modern mid-century styles, with calm earthy tones and lots of natural wood, I’d say that here Cohen’s love to Japanese designs is also seen clearly. Cozy, stylish and eye-catching – what can be better?
