Two distinct and seemingly disparate ideas are reflected in this house: the memory of a 19th century Cape Cod residence that stood on the site for over 100 years and the desire for a new, minimalist spatial expression.
As one moves through this house they are constantly reminded of their surroundings. Punched windows in the wooden boxes frame specific views while the glass boxes allow one to feel like part of the landscape. At night the essence of the concept is most apparent. Glowing membranes contrast against punches of light from the adjoining solid shells.
