Background: A flag lot with a late 1960’s colonial home. An initial engagement for additions and alterations to this home evolved into a design of a new home inspired by English Arts and Crafts and the domestic architecture of Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869 to 1944).
The Solution: The triple gable with a grand sweeping roof and an undulating eyebrow eave were derived from Arts and Crafts architecture but are combined in new ways to form a contemporary charm. The design went through many significant changes but this strong roof and massing concept seemed to be inviolable. The home was lovingly detailed with time tested materials and beautiful transitions. The final result is a modern American overture to the original Arts and Crafts and Sir Edwin Lutyens himself.
Role: Design development, detailing, construction documents, and construction management in the office of Kennedy-Grant.
