The Winning Project

The owners of this cape style home were looking to create additional living space to accommodate family and friends while staying within the same footprint of the existing house. They also wanted a home designed for flow, feel and function. The homeowner was also hoping to create more of a coastal home feel rather than a vacation house to visit.

The addition of dormers and the conversion of the garage into interior living space fulfilled the clients desire for increased square footage. Dramatic redesign of the first and second floors included creating master suites on each level, and a great room including a three season room provided better use of the original space.

The interior design opened the rooms to flow from one to the other to give the feel of continuity. Each space was designated to function in a particular way.

Texture and color was strategically used to pull you through the house with a feeling of serenity.  Subtle unique coastal touches added to the whimsical feel the client wanted to achieve.
