Private Residence

Located on a beachfront property on Boston's north shore, this interior gut-renovation celebrates the individual spatial form of each room as a series of interconnected yet distinctive “pavilions.” 

  • The Living Room is characterized by a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, generous waterfront-facing glazing, and an ornamental built-in polished granite fireplace.
  • The Kitchen has a pristine aesthetic, with chrome and stainless steel appliances and fixtures, smooth white surfaces, and concealed cabinet hardware.  A dramatic conical window dominates the space, and washes the Kitchen with diffused natural light. 
  • The Dining Room / Sitting Room combination forms an interconnected procession towards the sea.  The linear stepped ceiling of the Dining Room leads to the seven-sided Sitting Room, with 270-degree views of the ocean. These rooms are connected by way of an ornamental archway, with grand columns resting atop custom wood cabinetry. The archway is both a literal and symbolic gateway to the Cape Ann shoreline in the distance.
