In part inspired by an antique book on Japanese architecture, the architecture of this contemporary space was informed by the traditional methods of stacking structures in clean, transparent ways. The result is a contemporary home with New England and Japanese inspiration at its root.
An intentional flow.
The load-bearing features of the home were used to help define the space and impose a sense of order on the open floor plan. The kitchen acts as the command center, the shared communal space. From here, each room flows logically through the house, stacked one after the next. The house moves from entryway to kitchen to sitting area to lawn to ocean. All managed in a clear, unobstructed flow.
