Have you ever thought about the various functions of a window? They don’t have to serve all functions, but the one(s) they do serve should be intentional. Light, Air, Views, Connection to Nature…as long as this is well considered, we find the rest of the design will fall easily into place. That was the motivating factor behind this single-family residential renovation and addition. An existing modified Cape Cod, typical of the area, had loads of charm but a 1980s post-modern addition made it disjointed and less-than functional for this modern family. Through a full interior renovation by Cedar Architecture Studio, plus the addition of an entry vestibule and a primary bathroom, the house underwent a transformation from quaint to post-modern to a disctifusion of its history. The goal was to create a feeling of inner expansiveness without reducing privacy in this urban neighborhood. And to let there be light.
