Project Type: Residential

Completion: In progress

Set along a golf course, with long views, green grass, this colonial cape style home needed a master suite. A large gable dormer with six windows and wood shake roof to match was introduced, bringing in East light and allowing views of the adjacent golf course greens.

Inside the master suite, space was tight. Rather than cutting into the bedroom area to fit a closet, a clever solution emerges. Closets are situated along the perimeter of the room, making the master bedroom larger.

A dark stairway is pierced with an adventurous and unexpected architectural skylight situated on the ridge above the stair.
