Designing a customized family home with accessibility in mind.


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.

The custom designed perforated metal panel guards for the main living room deck are a prominent stylistic feature.
