The Time Life 1994 Dream House
Designed by Robert Stern

 

In cleaning out my treasures clutter, I found the June 1994 issue of Life Magazine.  Each year Time Life published a house to be in the series of Dream Houses.  Robert Stern, who also designed the addition to the Bangor Public Library near where I live here in Maine,  designed the 1994 Dream House.  I had dreams of building a house like this someday. 


Here's what the house looks like built:  



Letting go of the magazine was a bit hard...maybe a bit like letting go of a dream.  BUT on the other hand, I am making room for what is actually taking place in life.  But I scanned the magazine article for future reference, in case I ever feel like taking on the challenge of building a house.  But then my computer died, taking the unbacked article with it.

  1. I have been looking for this article - which I also kept, but alas, cannot find after many years and 3 moves. If you have the time could you send me the scans of the article? I especially like the adaptability of the exterior - as well as Stern's comments. Very sweet blog!

  2. Jayne, We built this home in 1999. Added a basement and enlarged the breakfast bay - no other changes.
    You will love living in this house.

  3. I have this magazine and have saved it for the beautiful house plans it featured. Loved seeing that others also made a connection to it somehow.
