WHAT STYLE IS YOUR RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE?
- MID CENTURY MODERN
- TRADITIONAL SHINGLE STYLE
- TRADITIONAL COLONIAL
From what we see and what we are designing right now ALL of these are “trending up”
- In Chappaquiddick, an island and a part of Edgartown, we are building in a style with a
very traditional and vernacular late 19th century sensibility and detailing.
- In Concord, additions are under construction in keeping with the Walter Gropius
modernism of the 1940s and 50s.
- In Aquinnah an all new construction house embodies the very prevalent combination of
styles, contemporary and transitional. Walls of glass open up living space to panoramic
water views while more traditional double hung windows with divided lites grace the
- Chilmark Pond Residence is a traditional shingle style in external appearance with more
contemporary open plan interior.
- Great Pond transcends classification of style with a very rustic yet very modern overall
vibe. The use of stone metal and glass in the exterior shell has a timeless “one for theages” look and feel
The architecture of your home comes from your unique collaboration with the architecture and
interior design team. The history and cultural location of the property can have an exciting and appropriate stylistic influence.

We want You to be outwardly enthused, and inwardly proud of your incredible new home (loving
it inside and out!)
So, while we are happy to focus on the building component called “house” we can already see
your custom dining room table and unique swimming pool. In a strictly professional definition we
are architects and as such engineer design and detail the exterior shell and the interior layout,
flow and orientation of space. And yes, it is Architecture that defines value in engenius sensitive
response to all aspects of location.
- Like a beautiful view of the water
- Like a sloping knoll in a clearing
- Like a cultural response in an old neighborhood
- Like a covered bridge or a sturdy dock or human anatomy
ROOF to give shade and shed rain and hold nothing
FLOOR to provide support order and level headedness
WINDOW to remind us to be outdoors and to travel the world
TABLE to share thoughts across and do what a floor does at a more ergonomic height
SEAT to remind us how much we would prefer to stand and amired the design.
At this point, for me in my practice of residential architecture, every location and family brings
forth an unavoidably complete vision of home. The burgeoning residence is no more without
expressive structural engineering or hidden technology than it is without the dining room table and the pool terrace.
