Located in a residential neighborhood in Cape Cod, this home is the perfect getaway for a family of four wanting to escape the city life of Boston.
The four module home was set on an existing 50’ x 30’ foundation to utilize the existing structure, expedite the construction process, retrofit a new home and upgrade the homes amenities taking advantage of the natural surroundings. The new 2,775 sf home has an exterior stair leading to an expansive roof deck where one can bask in the sun and be in awe of the views overlooking Salt Pond Bay.
The Double Decker 2 bar Typology is essentially 2 boxes set on another 2 boxes with a single cut carved out to designate entry. To further expand the programmatic needs of the client and not exceed the existing footprint, appendages of linear 2×2 cedar screens of living space, exterior showers, balconies, and decks were added on.
The house is clad in a contextual cedar shake siding and tied together with accents of blue cement board panels. With large expanses of glass and numerous operable windows the house takes advantages of summer breezes and blurs the division of interior and exterior. Furthermore, the exterior roof deck is complete with an exterior fireplace, creating the perfect setting to view the sunset and Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Furnished with maple cabinets and dark grey stone countertops the kitchen is open to the living and dining area and is visually connected to the exterior with sliding doors opening onto the rear deck.
While open communal areas dominate the first floor, the second floor is compact with three bedrooms, two and half baths and a media room, which is linked to the exterior staircase leading to the roof deck. The master bedroom suite features a cantilevered balcony and exterior shower along with a alcove for a desk and chair to active as a makeshift office.
