Cape House

RESOLUTION: 4 ARCHITECTURE as Architects

Located in a residential neighborhood in Cape Cod, this home is the perfect getaway for a family of four wanting to escape the city life of Boston. The four-module home was set on an existing 28’ x 50’ foundation to utilize the existing structure and expedite the construction process. The new home takes advantage of its natural surroundings with an exterior stair leading to an expansive roof deck where one can bask in the sun while in awe of the views overlooking both the bay and the ocean beyond. The house is clad in a contextual cedar shake siding and tied together with accents of gray cement board panels. With large expanses of glass and numerous operable windows, the house takes advantages of summer breezes and blurs the division of interior and exterior. Furthermore, the exterior roof deck is complete with an exterior fireplace, creating the perfect setting to view the sunset and Salt Pond Bay beyond. Furnished with maple cabinets and dark quartz countertops, the kitchen is open to the living and dining areas and visually connected to the exterior with sliding doors opening onto the rear deck. While open communal areas dominate the first floor, the second floor is composed of three bedrooms, two and a half baths and a media room that is linked to the exterior staircase leading to the roof deck. The master bedroom suite features a cantilevered balcony and exterior shower, along with an office alcove.
