Observing the past, designing for the future.
This custom-built home was conceived as an expression of the architectural dialog existing between a contemporary home and an existing Georgian style heritage structure on site. Located overlooking the ocean, the residence was intended to accommodate shifting living requirements for a retired couple, whilst observing the sites steep slope.
Custom finished stucco, fiberglass glazing, wood and metal cladding create a subtle material palette that will age gracefully in the exposed coastal conditions and blend into the surrounding landscape.
Covered and uncovered patios located in response to summer and winter exposure of outdoor spaces.
Mindful designs ideas to accommodate all accessibility requirements for owners, ensuring full enjoyment of their home.
The custom designed perforated metal panel guards for the main living room deck are a prominent stylistic feature.
Unobtrusive integration of accessible features into the main living/sleeping area is a successful translation of the programmatic requirements within the interior design.
