Description originale

Overlooking Cape Cod’s Pleasant Bay, the project features a main house, art studio and guest apartment, and detached office tower. The husband-wife couple who commissioned Charles Rose Architects expressed interest in a house design that they could enjoy year-round: one that would take in the site’s expansive water views and natural light but would also provide shelter and comfort in the cold months. The house, which traces a natural bowl in the landscape, is perched on the site’s high point to seize the commanding water views. One room deep at all points, it employs large amounts of glass seaside to open the house to light and water, while on the landside, a low copper roof provides ample protection for the house’s private spaces. “This duality provides a summer house that emphasizes freedom, sunlight and exposure, and a winter house allowing for comfort, intimacy and enclosure,” write the authors of All American: Innovation in American Architecture.
