The Project: 

My clients wished to transform a classic Arlington Cape Cod into a “new” modern home without losing the original house’s charming curb appeal. This was accomplished through a full gut and renovation of the existing home, coupled with a modern rear addition. Highlights include large open first floor spaces, a soaring owner’s suite with 10-foot ceilings and large casement windows throughout.

Moving the existing central staircase was the key to creating a large family room within the existing structure. Directly connected to the family room is an expansive eat-in kitchen that is centered on a chef’s island with waterfall countertops and separate prep sink.

Biophilic design is evident in the materials selected for the project, including cedar exterior siding, oak floors and ceiling beams, and hand woven reed grass light fixtures.
