Originally built in the 1920’s, this house suffered numerous inharmonious modifications and additions requiring an almost surgical design approach. Reconfigured circulation, enhanced functionality, and a wholly new interior were the result of a substantial remodel where most of the upper floor and roof were strategically removed.
The clients’ preference for the simple volumes of the “shingle-style” Cape Cod vernacular inspired a Shaker-like minimalism evident in the five gable roof form, the repetition of the double-hung window module and the weathered cedar shingle exterior.
