This mid-century modern house is located within the Cape Cod National Seashore Park and is sited on a knoll overlooking two kettle ponds. The 2008 addition by Hammer Architects includes a master bedroom suite, study, and kitchen on the first floor. A new roof deck overlooking the ponds is accessed through the second floor home office. The renovated portion of the residence houses the living/ dining room and two guest bedrooms.
The design challenge was to integrate a twenty-first century year round addition with a mid century modernist “summer cottage”. New windows were carefully designed to relate to the fenestration and pattern of the existing wing and provide natural ventilation and views. The materials were selected to blend into the context and the sunscreen in addition to shading the windows and providing a covered outdoor dining terrace, knits the entire complex together as a unified composition.
