Custom New Build 3,001 to 6,000 square feet

Harmonious Home

With an eye for design, the client collected inspirational images for use in his home, challenging the architect to create a unique fit for the homeowner’s lifestyle.

A French-influenced exterior adds a special touch and a reminder of other homes the client once lived in. To complement the modest height of the surrounding Cape Cod homes in the neighborhood, the home’s two-story portion was pushed farther from the street than its neighbors to diminish its scale. The architects incorporated a single-story garage into the front of the house, where its scale aligned with the adjacent neighbors.

Artistic touches throughout the project resulted from the synergy between the homeowner and the architect. Much of the exterior of the home is covered in white brick, with an intimate covered patio facing the backyard, complete with an outdoor fireplace for cozy spring and fall evenings.
