Location! This site provides a wonderful backdrop for a full renovation to an existing house, capturing dramatic views while creating spaces to welcome multiple generations to this truly unique beach house. The design continues with unique complexities, salvaging and reclaiming many materials and fixtures as we raise the house on piers to satisfy new flood zone requirements.
A driftwood stair was the request and both design and craftsmanship created a stunning reclaimed stairway and focal point. With oak pilings from Boston’s harbor and heart pine from a Massachusetts factory, we developed both a stair and display case.
The beach side connects with all the benefits of this location. Circulation is clear and easy while allowing places to sit, relax, and enjoy the ocean view with its breezes. This continues inside with large yet traditional openings with higher vistas.
