Editor’s Letter

A Tradition of the Untraditional

C

ontemporary design is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you contemplate a summer on Cape Cod, Nantucket, or Martha’s Vineyard. These environs are, after all, famously steeped in the past, their views tinted by the aura of vacations of yore. Battalions of travel agents and PR firms have spent decades buffing the region’s image to a fine nostalgic glow. And yet . . . the architectural heritage of the Cape and islands has never been as monolithic as all that. Sure, the doughty center-chimney Cape house—preferably hunkered down in an encircling mass of hydrangeas—holds pride of place in our collective imagination. But the more elaborate Shingle style, equally prized in many neighborhoods from Osterville to Aquinnah, is a much later arrival—its voluptuous Victorian forms corseted in what is only a seemingly chaste Colonial skin. More modern building modes have been making inroads for a long time. Woods Hole’s “Airplane

House” by Purcell and Elmslie was built in 1912. In 1937, Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, recently come to teach at Harvard’s newly minted Graduate School of Design, rented a Cape Cod house with his wife, Ise, where they entertained a number of their emigrant European colleagues, including Marcel Breuer, and thereby planted the seeds for a thriving little vacation community destined to leave behind a thicket of modern dwellings scattered across Wellfleet and Truro. Midcentury master Eliot Noyes, a student of Breuer’s and one of the so-called “Harvard Five” from New Canaan, Connecticut, is also responsible for several homes on the Vineyard, and quite a few additional contemporary architects have enriched the MV built environment in the years since. (Contemporary style on Nantucket usually exists more inside than out, given the island’s constricting network of building regulations. Although architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, I’d say, has come as close as anyone ever may to making a truly modern-looking structure there: Google “Harbor Hill Nantucket” if you’re curious.) For this year’s edition of New England Home Cape & Islands, we’ve decided to survey some of the modern work being done today by New England’s architects and interior designers. Not that we intend to disregard the more traditional delights you may be expecting—there’s a very grand confection to be found starting on page 106, for the more conservative-minded among you. Nonetheless, I hope you’ll enjoy perusing a few projects for which Ezra Pound’s Modernist motto, “Make it new!” applies to noticeably more than just the date of construction. —Kyle Hoepner

of the full moon for guiding ships out of harm’s way. The cargo of marooned and splintered vessels was their bounty. Provincetown sculptor Mike Wright calls herself a mooncusser. With both a chuckle and a note of pride, she says, “I think of myself in the tradition of the scavengers who would scour the beach for lost treasure. My treasure just happens to be wood.” In a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, the flotsam and jetsam Wright has collected and fashioned into abstract, three-dimensional art for the past twenty-five years has to meet her stringent criteria. It has to be painted wood, not raw. Also, “It absolutely has to be from Provincetown,” she says. “I feel like it’s got an energy that’s this place.” Creative sorts—Eugene O’Neill, John Dos ­Passos, Hans Hofmann in the past; Norman Mailer, Anthony Bourdain, and Michael Cunningham more recently—have long sought out the Outermost Land for its acceptance of human diversity, its nurturing of the soul, and its pristine natural beauty. “Friends and I would pile into a van every weekend and drive to Provincetown,” says Wright, recalling road trips she took for diversion from her jobs as an elementary school art teacher and graphic designer in Baltimore. Finally, in 1983, she bought a B&B on the

Artistry swords (a precursor, she says, to her sculpture career). But her path didn’t come full circle until, after dabbling in oil painting, printmaking, and watercolor, she enrolled in a class with sculptor Paul Bowen at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. With Bowen, she says, “All the processes were perfect for me. I got to take long walks on the beach with my dogs; I could drag a big chunk of a boat or a plank from a floor back to the studio; and then I could hammer on it.” The physicality appeals to her. Cobalt, saffron, turquoise, and occasionally orange and burgundy, the hues of Wright’s wood are surprisingly vibrant, given its age and provenance.

are still elements of what it was,” she says. “That’s what I’m always after; keeping some hint of what it was so the viewer can feel it.” Unlike, say, rope or bits of metal that also come in with the tide, wood speaks to Wright. “No one can duplicate the patina that comes from being scrubbed by the sea, the sand, and the salt waves.” The wood appeals to other senses as well. “If I cut a piece that’s cedar, it’s very fragrant. Sometimes it has sounds. If it’s been in the sea, or drying, for a long time, all of a sudden you’ll hear groans and pops; it’s alive.” Wright often takes inspiration from modernist painters of Provincetown from the 1930s, ’40s, and ’50s, like Blanche Lazzell and Kenneth Stubbs. “I like to think two-dimensionally at first and then push it to three,” she explains. In recent years, more people are scavenging the beaches, and with far fewer wooden boats, the material Wright prizes is harder to find at water’s edge. “I migrated to driving the streets and eventually Dumpster diving,” she says.

From the front entrance to the backyard views, savvy design treats every part of the landscape as a special moment.

architects and designers are skilled • Landscape when it comes to creating memorable schemes for

homeowners, be it a driveway entrance, a pool, a courtyard, or an outdoor shower. As they see it, beauty and function go hand in hand, no matter how big or small the project.

| TEXT BY MEGAN FULWEILER |

The Long View Thanks to landscape architect Keith LeBlanc’s streamlined redesign of this Provincetown property, the owners maximized their spectacular waterfront location and gained some privacy. A billboard fence (at a height that purposely doesn’t mar the neighbor’s vistas) marks the entrance to a new garden filled with roses and hydrangeas. The existing pool area, which sits along the home’s left flank, was completely transformed. Yesterday’s awkwardly placed garage became instead the perfect well-equipped cabana with a mahogany deck and an outdoor kitchen. A bluestone terrace was also added “so chaises can catch the afternoon sun,” LeBlanc explains. At the pool’s opposite end, alterations were even more dramatic. Despite a glass fence (to keep the pool code-compliant), a seldom-used freestanding arbor blocked the glorious Cape Cod views. LeBlanc removed the arbor and planted waves of native sea grass. The

Welcome Home There’s little space between houses in this picturesque Hyannis Port neighborhood. “It’s quaint and cozy,” says landscape designer W. Gregory Bilowz, who, despite the tight program, devised an inviting and practical driveway for the handsomely renovated home. To open up the compact area, Bilowz carefully relocated several old hollies. Next, he reconfigured the existing haphazard hardscape, installing a curved drive of three-eighths-inch native stone (“a blend of stone colors complements the home’s shingles,” he explains) with a viburnum hedge and a retaining wall at the end. The wall helps form “a quasimotor court,” Bilowz says. Now there’s plenty of room for

cars to park and turn around. A bed alongside the house holds a bounty of lush flora, including rhododendrons, skimmia, and oakleaf hydrangeas. The colorful plantings further the driveway’s garden-like presence, seamlessly linking the entry to the rest of Bilowz’s lovely landscaping. PROJECT TEAM

Sanctuary Space A winding path leads to a boardwalk that culminates in this intimate garden space created by landscape architect Kris Horiuchi. The light-capturing terrace on the east side of the house provides round-the-clock enjoyment. Built into a hillside, which shelters it from the wind and, says Horiuchi, offers ideal conditions for plantings, it’s a warm, quiet refuge all day. When night descends, a firepit carved into the fieldstone paving draws everyone out under the stars. The owners wanted

To that end, Horiuchi incorporated aged lichen-covered fieldstone (similar stone was used for the home’s foundation and fireplace) in the traditional farm stack walls and packed the hill with native cedars, bayberry, scrub oak, and viburnums. “Summer-blooming shrubs and perennials are planted in naturalized beds that tumble down the slope,” she says. All-time favorite flowers like Shasta daisy, lavender, daylilies, Nepeta, Clethra, and Russian sage—to name just a few—lend color and fragrance. PROJECT TEAM

Additional boulders (rocks are integral to Japanese landscape designs for lending a natural feel) also appear in the nearby garden area where the landscape architect added hydrangeas to the plant roster along with a welcoming bench. “It’s a good spot for relaxing after a shower or if the owners just need to take a break during a workout,” Coutu says.  PROJECT TEAM

Cape Contemporary

The modernists of the last century inspired an architectural style that lives on in the work of many of today’s Cape Cod design professionals. | BY PAULA M. BODAH |

The Great Outdoors Designers and architects often talk about “bringing the outside in,” creating a house with a strong connection between the interior and the outdoors. In the case of this Chappaquiddick home, that is a serious understatement. Architect Peter Rose let the woods, wetland, and coastline of the property play the starring role. The 6,300-squarefoot main house follows the undulations of the land and is organized around a central axis that looks out to Cape Poge Bay in one direction

and the Atlantic Ocean in the other. To one side of the axis, the public areas occupy a single level. On the other side, a two-story wing drops down into the landscape, making a surprisingly compact package for the seven bedrooms and four baths within. In the main living space, Douglas fir ceilings and walls of fir and beech echo the outdoors. The wood, particularly where the framing is exposed, “makes the house feel more elemental, almost as if it doesn’t really have windows, doors,

And what a landscape it is, with its western panorama across Buzzards Bay.

The view reveals itself only slowly, though, thanks to Cappuccino’s clever design. The driveway curves through welcoming gardens created by landscape architect Kris

The core’s downstairs hallway follows a concrete walkway between floors of walnut to the rear of the house and a glass wall that frames the view. Upstairs, a glass floor ushers light deep into the house (and elicits wows from those who see it for the first time). Out back, a sort of magic happens. “The curve reflects the coastline,” Cappuccino explains, describing the graceful arc of the red cedar overhang that sweeps along the rear of the house, sheltering the glass walls of the firstfloor rooms. Horiuchi designed the terrace and infinity-edge pool to promote the sense that the house, backyard, and bay are all of a glorious piece.

Family Affair

LDA ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS

The three generations of the Schiller family wanted a home where they could gather—as a clan or in their own smaller units—and have just the right amount of togetherness or privacy at any given moment of the day. As a new graduate of the Yale School of Architecture, second-generation family member Aaron Schiller joined forces with Alan Organschi and Lisa Gray of Gray Organschi Architecture. The beautiful old stone walls that crisscrossed the Chilmark property inspired the team to design something that would honor the area’s agrarian past, Gray explains. The result is a house that recalls barns of old, but is unmistakably contemporary. The exterior wears Yakisugi siding, a charred wood that imparts an instant feeling of age. The long, gabled building puts the grandparents’ bedroom and most of the public areas on the top floor. “When Mom and Dad are here alone, being upstairs is just like being in a one-bedroom house,” Gray says. The bottom floor holds three bedrooms for the next generation and a bunk room for the grandkids. Upstairs, walls, floors, and ceilings of bleached ash and simple, contempo-

Into the Woods Jill Neubauer describes this Chilmark house as “simple shed forms with a connector.” Of course, the architect notes, a closer look reveals the complexity behind that simplicity. Riffing on the traditional dormered Cape-style house that connects to a garage via a breezeway, Neubauer added flip-up dormers that usher southern light into the house, turned the breezeway concept into a glass-enclosed entryway, and clad the house in horizontal siding for a contemporary look. One wing juts east from the entry and holds two bedrooms, the wife’s art studio, a mudroom, and the garage, while the

The dining area hews to the theme with a live-edge black-walnut table (with a stunning crushed amethyst insert to fill a hole in the slab) and a chandelier created from driftwood the homeowners collected on their beach walks.

WHEN

people think of historic Cape Cod architecture, they usually picture a “Cape,” that steep-roofed, cedar-shingled box with small windows and no frills. How then, can the architects behind a very modern house in Truro with a flat roof, horizontal lines, and walls of glass claim that it was inspired by the Cape’s architectural history? Because, it turns out, the outer Cape was also one of the nation’s major centers of modernist design. Before World War II, some of Europe’s greatest architects and designers, such as Bauhaus veterans Walter Gropius and ­Marcel Breuer, settled in and around ­Boston. Back then, the outer Cape—Prov­ ince­town, Truro, Wellfleet—was hard to get to and economically depressed, so land was cheap. And the rolling dunes, scrub pines, and kettle-hole ponds as clear-blue

LOCKWISE FROM ABOVE:

High awning windows on one side of the house and low ones on the other create a constant flow of cooling breeze. High and low styles—a dining table from Roche Bobois, cabinetry from IKEA—coexist happily in the open kitchen/dining area. Forgoing upper cabinets keeps the kitchen sleek; the architects added a second pantry for storage.

as the Caribbean had long since attracted a community of forward-thinking writers and artists, from Eugene O’Neill to Robert Motherwell. So, Breuer and Gropius, along with other icons of the modernist movement like Eero Saarinen, Olav Hammarstrom, and Serge Chermayeff, designed and built relatively inexpensive houses on the outer Cape for themselves and their clients, turning it into one of the country’s great modernist hotspots. Architects Don DiRocco and Mark Hammer, of Hammer Architects, were inspired by that history when they designed this modernist Truro home for physician Katherine O’Flynn Christian and filmmaker Alan Metter. When M ­ etter

and Christian met over a decade ago, she talked about a cabin in the woods for a second home, maybe in Tennessee. He is a native of Sharon, Massachusetts, however, who had been going to Truro most of his life. When he brought Christian to the Cape, she loved it so much she suggested they stop by a real estate office. They searched for a few years, always intending to renovate an existing home. The house they eventually bought was, says Metter, “a small midcentury-modern box. No insulation, but the view was spectacular, across a marsh and all the way to Corn Hill.” As they started to work on renovations, however, the couple realized the house was beyond repair. The foundation

was cracked, the basement wet, the roof leaked, and the design dark and overbearing. They had no choice but to tear it down. Metter had long loved modernism, and Christian had become a fan as well, so when they started to plan the new house with DiRocco and Hammer, modernist style seemed like the obvious choice. Metter cites the history of modernism in that part of the Cape, but also the practicality of it. A philosophy major in college, he was drawn to the Pragmatists, and he believes in a central tenet of the Bauhaus designers, that “form follows function.” He practiced that while making movies with Rodney Dangerfield, Sarah Jessica Parker, and a young Ben Stiller. “My shot selection was always to make the camera invisible and get the story told,” he says. He and Christian applied this same ethos to their new house. “The view is the reason for the house Summer 2019 | New England Home Cape & Islands  81

being there,” Metter says, “so we wanted a lot of glass.” Visitors don’t see the view until they reach the front door. Immediately inside, they are wowed. The open living room, dining room, and kitchen, as well as the master bedroom and bath, take up the first floor and face the water. Because the lot is quite steep, hemmed in by setbacks on both sides and zoning height restrictions, that main floor couldn’t have been any bigger without the use of very tall supports. So the architects skillfully fitted in a walk-out basement and second floor, which, with the flat-roof motif, seem to snap together onto the main space like Legos. DiRocco and Hammer used carefully placed steel posts to create strong, wind-

shear-resistant glass walls, and a quiet look that draws attention not to the architecture, but to the views. Sliding glass doors connect inner and outer spaces. Overhangs shade the hottest hours of the sun, and awning windows placed low on one wall and high on another provide a constant flow of air to keep things cool. “I’d never built a house before,” Metter says, “but there are many parallels between building a house and making a movie. You have to imagine the scene, then put the parts together to make it real.” And a movie set has departments, from lighting to makeup, “so you hire good people and you trust them. Houses are the same way.” Besides DiRocco and Hammer,

ecause the house is on a hill, it provides one of the longest views in Truro. FACING PAGE: Like the first modernists on the Cape, who built houses to celebrate summer, indoor spaces are linked with the outdoors.

Metter appreciates the work of builder Eric ­Winslow, who brought the meticulous skills of an old-world craftsman. ­Winslow’s father, also a builder on the Cape, constructed midcentury-modern houses designed by famous modernist architects for Woman’s Day magazine, which furnished the materials and then sold the plans. Christian is an avid gardener who gave input to Cambridge-based landscape architect Jessalyn Jarest, but also trusted her to handle the complex problems of incorporating parking and screening neighbors on the top of a steep hill. Jarest explains that the midcentury architects tried to preserve natural vegetation as much as possible, so that their houses felt surrounded by nature. She used native trees and shrubs like red pines and tupelo to hide the neighbors, and bayberry and sweet fern to create a sense that the house is grounded in the local habitat. Then, together with Christian, she chose colorful perennials for the entrance. “We had

native vegetation come up to the house,” Jarest says, connecting it to the natural landscape, “but then added pops of vibrant colors around the doorway so you really feel that you’re arriving.” Metter and Christian collected midcentury modern art and furniture for this house until their garage in Florida was so full they had to park their cars outside. They bought modernist paintings in New York galleries and found the Pierre Paulin Ribbon chair and whale’s tail ottoman on eBay and had them reupholstered. Christian did much of the interior design, choosing surface details from tile to doorknobs. “She really led the project,” Metter says. “I’d throw her ideas, but it’s her house, and she never let me down. She kept my good ideas and got rid of the bad ones. ‘Your work on this is so good,’ I told her, ‘that this is going to be a magazine house.’ ” And he was right.  RESOURCES : For more information about this home, see page 154.

Fortunately, these homeowners recruited a trio of Nantucket-based professionals who knew each other well, having collaborated successfully on previous projects. Architect Mark Cutone, interior designer Audrey Sterk, and Joe Gamberoni of Cross Rip Builders couldn’t have been a better choice. But, according to Gamberoni, it was also having enthusiastic, decisive clients that brought the dream house to happy fruition. “When all four corners of the square come together— architect, designer, builder, and owners—it makes for a seamless outcome,” he says.

tucket, but now the time seemed right for something more permanent. They fantasized about dreamy summers, like those the husband enjoyed on the island as a boy, for their three daughters. Since Dad’s favorite memories included strolling into town, they purchased a site within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Cutone’s challenge was to devise a neighborhood-appropriate retreat that would fit the under-an-acre property and still provide enough room for the family and their friends. “In addition to accommodating the client’s program, we wanted them to have green space, the right amount of sun, and also some privacy,” the architect says. It sounds like a tall order, but Cutone’s stellar design meets all the criteria. The two-story shingled house has four bedrooms and a fully finished basement that includes a fun bunk room and a media room. The first floor’s open plan merging kitchen, dining room, and living room lends itself to large gatherings, while a cozy study serves as a haven for quiet time. A freestanding guest studio welcomes weekend overflow. And, no doubt, crowds are not unusual. Decks spill out to the southwest, providing bonus entertaining space. There’s an outdoor fireplace, too, tucked between the guest studio and the main house, where people congregate for stargazing. The understated exterior may be a paean to Nantucket’s Quaker influences, but visitors sense the interior’s contemporary vibe the moment they cross the threshold and spy the sculptural staircase to the second floor. With its oak risers, glass guards, and steel railings, it’s as artful as it is utilitarian. “We like to keep our home designs clean and simple,” says ● The generous deck wraps around the living room, increasing the home’s livable space. Interior designer Audrey Sterk elevates the outdoor area’s allure—as she has the whole house—with comfortable pieces that correlate with easy living and relaxation. The adjacent guest house/studio mimics the home’s design and provides bonus overnight accommodations.

But, here and there, she also splashed a jolt of vibrant, let-the-sun-in color. A bright orange door separates the entry from the mudroom. And bits of orange are cleverly threaded throughout from top to bottom. “We love the home’s midcentury modern flavor, the warm woods con-

trasting with the cool blues, and then the punch of invigorating orange,” she says. “Every project has its story; this story is modern.” Stroll from the entry past the staircase, and you’re in the heart of the house, the main living area. Always cognizant that family nests must function as beautifully as they look, Sterk zeroed in on details. She chose a flat-weave rug in the dining room, for example, because, as she points out, the chairs need to glide smoothly back and forth. A Scrim chandelier

As effortlessly as the tide, the dining room flows into the kitchen, which, with its fog-colored glass tiles and Caesarstone counters, flows in turn into the living room. To downplay the kitchen’s role as a workplace, Cutone designed a large pantry and loaded it with all the necessities any cook could want, from a bounty of storage to an extra dishwasher and sink.

space, the kitchen, with its Ligne Roset pendants and waterfall island, maintains a sleek demeanor no matter how big the occasion nor how numerous the company. “Messy dishes and such are whisked out of sight,” Cutone says. On less-than-balmy summer evenings, the owners sometimes light a fire in the relaxing living room. Streamlined but cozy sofas welcome guests, flanking a coffee table that becomes a landing pad for drinks, as do the custom-glazed side tables. A handcrafted rug lends an additional warming note, while sheer curtains provide just enough coverage to keep the darkness at bay. Eventually, when the fire and the candles have dwindled, everybody wanders off to a stylish bedroom. In the second-floor room shared by two of the girls, parallel built-in beds (all the beds were designed by Cutone) are tucked beneath the eaves. To up the feminine ambience, Sterk covered the boatlike berths with tassel-festooned linens. A rug with a lively pattern and sophisticated colors “will remain appealing even for teenagers,” the designer says. The older daughter’s haven features an orb light that casts a beguiling pattern and a sitting area with a lounge chair that’s perfect for curling up with a rainy-day book. Each bedroom has a hint of orange, and in the master suite the sunny hue shows up in artwork that really captures summer. Above the charcoal-stained

bed, two pieces by Richard Kemble, the beloved part-time Nantucket artist who died in 2007, are like a spirit-raising sunrise. Sterk followed the artwork’s lead with muted bedding by Coyuchi that mimics the color of Kemble’s landscape and a rug with a subdued watery pattern. Had the owners been on hand every day while the house was being built, it’s difficult to see how the

outcome could have been any more triumphant. Like a ribbon tying up a package, there’s even a parade of hydrangeas—a Nantucket classic—along the front porch. The billowy flowers, the prim shutters, and the cobblestone-capped driveway are only further proof that Gamberoni is right. When the team is congenial and adept, distance is no deterrent to good design.  RESOURCES : For more information about this home, see page 154. Summer 2019 | New England Home Cape & Islands  95

pinch some of the liquor company’s promotional material from the basement. By the time Ben and Pat Stone came across the house, it had been for sale for a few months: eons in Provincetown’s hot real estate market. The two-story structure, built around 1850 with a single-story addition tacked on in the 1970s, had a backyard and was well-located in a quiet block near the beach. Unfortunately, aluminum siding, plastic shutters, orange-yellow linoleum, and wall-to-wall carpeting dated the place.

The Stones knew they’d stumbled on an opportunity. As an interior designer, Pat wasn’t deterred by a fixer-upper. She could see the potential. “Ben is not a designer, but he has really good creative sensibilities, and he saw what I saw in it,” she says. Their vision: an open, beachy, contemporary home, consistent with Cape vernacular, comfortable for entertaining, and with finishes sturdy enough for their three dogs. Getting there would involve two big structural changes: adding a second story over the addition and removing interior walls and ceilings. Summer 2019 | New England Home Cape & Islands  99

The couple turned to Cambridge, Massachusettsbased architect Scott Grady, a friend with whom they’d collaborated before. Now, on approach, the house presents as a classic Cape with a simple primary gable, two dormers on a cross gable, black shutters, doublehung windows with black mullions, and a black asphalt roof. The front is clad in white clapboard, while the rest of the house wears cedar shingles,

an aesthetic preference that historically began, Grady notes, as economic necessity. In earlier times, people used the more expensive clapboard only for the public-facing side of their homes. (Ironically, he observes, shingling is the pricier option today.) The second-floor addition accommodates a spacious, high-ceilinged master bedroom suite and gives the home the massing it needed for

overall balance. Windows are now arranged symmetrically around the front door. In the neighborhood, houses are tightly clustered and virtually flush to the street, but the Stones managed to add a gravel driveway and plant hydrangeas in front. Out back, they tiled half the yard in stone to create a patio, added a vegetable garden, and installed a synthetic grass lawn—a precaution given their dogs’ fondness for digging. Inside, walls were removed downstairs to create an open plan with a kitchen and dining area to the left of a small front entry hall and a living room to the right. Upstairs, the addition allowed the existing rooms to be reconfigured to include a new bathroom for the two bedrooms. Though the guest rooms are small, removing the low ceilings has given them an airy feel. Summer 2019 | New England Home Cape & Islands  101

Everything was brightened with new French doors at the back of the house, corner windows for the dining area, triple windows above the kitchen sink, and a window in the tip of the central gable. “I love light,” says Pat. “Who doesn’t?” As often happens during a renovation, the job turned out to be much bigger than anticipated. Once builder Clifford Colby, who is now retired, began, it became clear how much of the house wasn’t up to code. “It was a typical P-town house,” says Pat of the wooden pegs still used for nails and other curiosities they found in the old part of the house. “It was like someone went down to the beach and nailed together scraps of wood.” The house essentially needed to be rebuilt, wall by

wall, with Armstrong Home Improvement coming on for the latter part of the project. From a financial point of view, it might have made more sense to tear down and start from scratch, but by renovating, the Stones were able to keep the historic stairwell and expose the living room ceiling beams as well as the corner posts and beams in the two guest rooms. The interior design impulse was for something warm, minimal, and modern with a neutral palette of driftwood hues and pale grays. This meant combining traditional cottage finishes—like the horizontal shiplap on the ground-floor walls and the beadboard between the ceiling beams in the living room—with contemporary detailing. In the kitchen those modern touches include the marble-topped island, a back-

Pat found Nathan Yoder, an Indiana carpenter and supplier of reclaimed barn wood, on Etsy. He provided the wood and built or collaborated on the kitchen island and floating kitchen shelves as well as the master bath vanity. Elsewhere in the house, Pat outfitted the rooms in a mix of contem-

porary furniture from nationally known companies and pieces she found in favorite local boutiques and antique shops. Brighter color enters the house through art, as with Chris Wyllie’s aqua grid of small seascape paintings in a guest room.

pieces procured from local galleries, such as the large landscapes by local artist Michael del Visco. Another bedroom holds a playful photo-realist painting by Hank Hudson that depicts James Bond emerging from the ocean, a work that would be called pointillist if the dots in pointillist paintings were each several inches wide. The couple came home from a trip to the Italian coastal towns of Cinque Terre with a collection of handmade blue ceramic fish, which now swim happily on the wall behind the master bed. A stairwell shows off a second school of decorative fish placed so they seem to be poking their gold heads through the wall. Though Pat and Ben, who publishes a trade wine and spirits magazine, commute to Boston via plane or ferry, they spend as much time as possible in Provincetown. “The skies are not like anywhere in the world. The sunsets are not like anywhere in the world,” says Ben, noting that the unusual light has always attracted artists. And a final reason the beach house pulls the couple back? “When we walk in, we are just so happy,” says Pat.  RESOURCES : For more information about this home, see page 154.

T

hey say that in a perfect world (when stars align, and circumstances allow) your home is a mirror of yourself. It’s a place of self-expression, a potent statement of who you are.

All existential “deeper meaning of home” stuff aside, Boston interior designer Heather Wells will tell you in a heartbeat that this iconic Shingle-style residence on Martha’s Vineyard is every bit a reflection of the empty-nesters who live there. “It’s exactly who they are,” she says—from its overall relaxed vibe and discrete living spaces to the way it was designed to suit the couple’s love of entertaining. Also, the way it sparkles. “For starters, they’re gorgeous,” says the designer of her clients. “They’re impeccably dressed and beautiful inside and out. They have a formality to them, but they’re incredibly friendly, always smiling, welcoming. The wife is

super design-oriented, and really grounded. She’s a high-low gal.” Although the couple met in New York, they both come from families with deep roots on the island and had, while growing up, spent plenty of time there. They searched until they located a waterfront lot they loved, then decided in 2017 to build their Vineyard dream house. With its twin gables, a gloriously sprawling wraparound porch, dormers, and a rounded turret, the house is quintessential Martha’s Vineyard. A three-bay garage houses the husband’s cherished classic cars. The project also included a new guest house, pool house, and the renovation of an old beach shack that sat on the property.

THERE’S NO FORMAL DINING ROOM, BY DESIGN. THE OWNERS “WANTED THE PORCH TO WORK REALLY WELL, SO IT SERVES AS THE DINING ROOM,” SAYS HEATHER WELLS.

CLOCKWISE FROM ABOVE: A side porch is perfect for informal gatherings. A gorgeous alcove with unparalleled views holds the family’s only indoor dining space. The kitchen was designed with two islands: one for the couple to share with every party’s ubiquitous crowd in the kitchen and another for the caterer.

Architects Jennifer Smith and Scott Hutton sited the nearly 12,000-squarefoot main house to take advantage of views, of course. Their firm, Smith & Hutton, is based in the Philadelphia area, but they do most of their work on the Cape and islands. “We went with a traditional Shingle-style and used materials found in New England,” says Smith—from white cedar shingles and mahogany decking to the landscape

design’s brick, boxwoods, and white hydrangeas. On siting and materials selection, the two worked closely with Edgartown builder Gerret Conover and landscape architect Elisabeth O’Rourke of Nantucket’s Jardins International. Designer Wells came on board early enough in the construction process that she was able to make some changes to the interior architecture and choose all the

interior finishes. The main house features four bedrooms, six full baths, and three half baths. The floor plan was completely informed by the couple’s penchant for entertaining. “They’re very social and wanted different levels of entertaining,” says Wells. “There was lot of discussion around how the house was going to flow.” There’s no formal dining room, by design. “They wanted the porch to work really well, so it serves as the dining Summer 2019 | New England Home Cape & Islands  111

room,” says Wells. An expansive, flat backyard is perfect for a large tent that can hold several hundred guests. Indoors, a flexible sitting area with four comfy barrel chairs is easily transformed into a dining space. Other indoor entertaining spaces abound—from a living room with a walk-in bar to a family room that connects with a wide-open kitchen to a no-holds-barred lower level that houses a bowling alley and media room. A shoutout to that living room bar: while it was always intended to be a separate space, it was Wells who suggested the black doors, taupe cabinetry, and silver leaf backsplash that add easy elegance. Nothing was gratuitous, and every space is used all the time, says Wells. “They have dinner parties every weekend—whether it’s for two, twelve, or twenty-five.” On any given summer weekend, the couple will have “three or four things going on,” she says. The house had to be up to it. “The first-floor living areas were required to transition easily from a crowd to as few as two people,” says Hutton.

“THE OWNER IS A VIBRANT PERSON, AND HER INTERIORS REFLECT THAT. SHE SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED A LIGHTNESS, SPARKLE, AND REFLECTIVITY THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE,” SAYS WELLS.

If the house feels open and inclusive on the first floor, upstairs is a different story. “The spaces on the floors above needed to transition comfortably to smaller private areas that would feel cozy,” says Hutton, “in order to balance out the open flow of the first floor.” The master suite includes a sitting room, his and hers baths and dressing rooms, and a private porch. The wife has a gorgeous sanctuary in the turret, with an antique desk and modern chaise set up to take advantage of the stunning views. The husband’s retreat comprises most of the top floor. They both have spiral staircases inside their dressing rooms; hers leads to an extension of her closet, and his takes him up to his getaway. There are two more en suite bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a first-floor guest suite. Both first and second floors feel relaxed and sophisticated with their color scheme of serene grays, black-andwhite, oatmeal, and a little dusty purple. The lower level, where a wine cellar and lounging/TV-watching area join the bowling alley and pool table, is the polar opposite: rich and bold in shades of red (inspired by a favorite lipstick and nail polish) and black. Comfort rules this house, and yet there’s glam at every turn. “The wife understands that certain things raise the level of the space in the same way that diamonds elevate jeans and a white shirt,” Wells says. “She is a vibrant person, and her interiors reflect that. She specifically requested a lightness, sparkle, and reflectivity throughout the house.” Crystal fixtures that catch the light just so, custom fabrics with a hint of shimmer, and furniture and decorative accents with a metallic glow are the extras that provide the sparkle. There are lovely vignettes throughout the home—like a hallway’s little console table with a bold painting above it and two petite poufs underneath—and Wells credits the client for them. Some clients run out of steam, but not this one. “She saw the project through to the end,” the designer says. “Everything is purposely placed and not just there to fill space. She was able to get to nuance—and we didn’t have to twist her arm to get there. “She touched every corner in a beautiful way. That’s who she is.”  RESOURCES : For more information about this home, see page 154.

Interior designer Anne Becker worked with architect Lisa ­Botticelli to create a guest bedroom for kids that would evoke a nautical feeling without any unnecessary clutter at a summer home on Nantucket’s Eel Point. “There’s a fine line between not enough and too much when it comes to designing a space,” says Becker. “When you are designing for young children, it makes sense to not fill the room with a lot of stuff.”

1. Becker is a big believer in lighting. “To me, lighting is like jewelry for a room,” she says. “It’s not an afterthought. It sets the tone more so than other parts of a room.” The centerpiece of this bunkhouse is the Ranger pendant in polished nickel from Barn Light Electric Company. | barnlight.com 2. The designer calls the Penarth walnut oval wall mirror from Crate & Barrel “an amazing value.” The unique basket underneath doubles as a laundry hamper. | crateandbarrel.com

3. Four of the five bunks have Cabin Light reading lamps from Circa Antiques. | circaantiques.com 4. There are actually five bunk beds in this room, with detailing designed by Botticelli. The guardrails are hinged, so making the beds is a breeze. The convenient storage drawers are adorned with hardware from Brass ’N Bounty in Marblehead, Mass., that resembles boat cleats. | brassandbounty.com 5. The bedding comes from Annie Selke. “It’s cotton, and the pattern is simple and geometric with a slightly bohemian vibe,” says Becker. “The client didn’t want fussy bedding.” | annieselke.com

Waves of the Future

A playful 1970s house gets a respectful—but lighthearted—update.

When Joy Cuming, founder and owner of Aline Architecture in Orleans, first laid eyes on what she calls The Wave House in Wellfleet, she knew she wanted to respect the vision of the home’s original architect, David Savage, while modernizing and expanding the space. ­Savage, a Frank Lloyd Wright devotee, designed and built the house in the 1970s as his primary residence. He eventually sold the property to a ceramicist and a novelist who, after living in the space for several years, decided they needed more room. The couple reached out to Cuming, who reimagined the home as a grouping of buildings with similar wave-like roof forms. “We essentially designed a garage with a room above it,” the architect says. “The garage is discreet and subterranean, while the whole structure revolves around a stair

tower built at the front. We added a lot of detail, like a breezeway that connects the buildings, and a curved outdoor shower. I used steel purlins to create the wave and used a wooden extension to fashion the eaves.” Inside the home, the wave pattern is reflected in subtle changes in levels from room to room, creating a cascading, undulating effect. As for that eye-catching stair tower, each of its landings is outfitted with a built-in bookcase so that it acts as a vertical library; the staircase coils up into a cubby where the homeowners’ grandchildren would congregate when they were younger. “It’s a very playful house,” says Cuming. “I redeveloped the home as a piece of sculpture. It’s a massing of forms connected by decks and a breezeway. Anywhere you look, it works as sculpture.”

Martha’s Vineyard Charm

With a classic beach cottage feel, this pretty property has all the island charm you’d expect to find on Martha’s Vineyard—from crisp white walls and trim to coffered ceilings and lovely outdoor spaces. There are three things that set it apart, says listing agent Dawn Bellante Holand: an excepMAIN HOUSE tional corner lot, a truly tasteful trans3 BEDROOMS formation of formerly dated structures, 2 FULL BATHS 1,324 SQ. FT. and the privacy that comes with two GUEST HOUSE residences that have separate entrances 2 BEDROOMS on two different streets. Holand play1 FULL BATH fully describes the style of the main 1 HALF BATH 1,064 SQ. FT house (which was built in 1975) as a cross $1,715,000 between “gambrel post and beam and clever coastal chic.” These are two distinct residential spaces, both fresh and island-friendly, both move-in ready. The sunny, welcoming spaces “make you want to take off your shoes, relax, and savor the island life,” Holand says. The main house has wide-plank floors and features a newly renovated first-floor bedroom suite with a custom walk-in closet, laundry, and bath. The interiors were all recently painted a cool white. There’s a wraparound porch and a large back deck. Behind a grove of mature evergreens sits the charming guesthouse, added in 1984 and renovated in 2011 with a custom kitchen and bath. There’s an uplifting feeling in both houses that everyone notices, says Holand. It’s also important to note that there’s serious rental potential here; it’s the perfect property for buyers who want to live on the Vineyard—and generate income to pay for it. Duly Noted: Katama is one of the Vineyard’s most desirable neighborhoods. It offers access to miles of pristine sand dunes and Atlantic Ocean coastline on the island’s south shore. Charming restaurants, the his-

toric grass Katama Airfield, and Katama General Store are within walking distance. Close by is Edgartown Village, a treasure trove of 1800s whaling captains’ homes, with brick sidewalks and roses trailing over white picket fences.

Provincetown Pair

A small family would love this place. A single, too. Or a couple. Or two couples. To clarify: it’s an ideal property for anyone who likes the idea of two spaces, at the beach, that are within arm’s reach of one another— but private. The boathouse and cottage are two of three units that comprise Labrador Landing, a condo association on the west end of Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod. The houses sit on the bay side of the property, offering views of Provincetown Harbor, Long Point, and beyond. They share a large deck that can be used for sunning or for access to the bay—five steps down lead to the sand or into the water, depending on the tide. (The main house, not for sale, sits on the street side of the property.) Designer-renovated in 2011, the two-story cottage has striking water views from both levels. French doors open to a private brick patio and the shared deck. There’s a small living/ dining area, a bedroom big enough for a queen-size bed, a reading BOATHOUSE area, and a private, wisteria-trimmed 1 BEDROOM 1 FULL BATH balcony. The historic boathouse was built 478 SQ. FT. in the 1800s and, like the cottage, was COTTAGE renovated in 2011; it’s cantilevered over 1 BEDROOM the water and features an open living/ 1 FULL BATH 342 SQ. FT. dining area, kitchen, bedroom, laundry, and staircase leading to a loft. Another $2,500,000 selling point: permits were drawn for a previous owner who wanted to build up, so with the proper town and association approval, you could potentially add a second story. Duly Noted: Labrador Landing is a well-known, beautifully restored and maintained rental property, one mile from the center of Provincetown. If a new owner is inclined to continue renting them, the two units command about $8,500 per week during peak season (mid-June through mid-September). Prov­ince­ town Harbor is a great spot for beach walks, swimming, and boating. There are two moorings and onsite parking for one car.

Design Ideas in the Making

always had a great love for Nantucket—my family has lived • I’ve there for six generations on my mother’s side, thirteen on my father’s

side—and I’ve designed more than 100 houses on the island. This one was a project of my own, not done for a client. The development is in an area of Squam/Wauwinet that has little cottages, so my idea was to give it the look of a small fishing village. The property includes a main house, a small guest house, and a garage/studio that feels like an old boathouse or barn. Articulating the structure with dormers and porches, plus keeping the overall massing to a story-and-a-quarter or a story-and-ahalf, helped the rooflines remain low. This allows the house to appear more modest in scale, more intimate, so that when you’re walking along the beach, it fits in. A lot of the changes you see in the sketches are based on input from the Historic District Commission as the plan developed. Details like the exposed rafter tails are similar to things you might see in ’Sconset or Quidnet. There is lots of wood inside, with horizonal shiplap walls, floors whitewashed for a driftwood effect, and an open living-dining-kitchen space. People think of open plans as something new, but old beach houses were like that, too. | J. Graham Goldsmith, J.
