Concord Green Home

2011 EcoHome Design Award Winner

Key to the successful design were the homeowner priorities of family health, energy performance, and optimizing the walk-to-town construction site. To maintain health and air quality, the home features a fresh air ventilation system with energy recovery, a whole house HEPA filtration system, radiant & radiator heating distribution, and low/no VOC materials. The home’s energy performance focuses on passive heating/cooling techniques, natural daylighting, an improved building envelope, and efficient mechanical systems, collectively achieving overall energy performance of 50% better than code. To address the site opportunities, the home utilizes a footprint that maximizes southern exposure in the rear while still capturing the park view in the front.

I used a series of early-edition nautical charts to paper the focal wall of the study. There are wallpapers available in nautical themes, but I enjoy repurposing furniture, fittings and materials in new ways. :)

I designed the wall of sliding barn doors and commissioned them from Circle B barns in Lancaster MA.

Best,

Nautical Chart Walls
Nautical Chart wallpaper is actually a water resistant wallcovering that is suitable for moist areas. It is a custom product and can be specific to the area in which you are interested. www.nauticalwalls.com

Hi - I just read the "how-to" on this and it says that the designer tacked the maps up using clear push pins and didn't go the further step to actually paste them to the wall because it looked fine as is. I'm trying to picture push pins even clear ones all over the walls - since there are multiple maps. The rest of the decor seems so perfect to leave push pins. Any chance we could see a close up showing the pins? I'd love to do this in our coastal NH home and would definitely be more apt to knowing I could leave the pins! Thanks

I used push pins to adhere the charts to the wall space above our kitchen cabinets. You really can't see them. I like the way they turned out.

Hi Kathleen. There are 4 sliding doors. I designed them to be able to close off the study completely, as well as open it all of the way. All four doors can slide completely clear of the study and sit against the right wall (not shown). The glass is clear... frost appearance is a trick of the light in photography.

Supa Doors
Very Nice Look Lisa on the Barn Doors. Love the mixture of glass and V-groove panels. We do something similar out of solid MDF on our Supa Doors, and saw them faux finish the doors onsite. Being in the door business it's nice to see select designers really using doors as a feature of the project. Kudos.

Thank you Supa Doors. Stay tuned for another project on Cape Cod in which I commissioned massive doors made from reclaimed windows and timber for the master bedroom suite entry. Will check out your line too.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Sailboats Around the House
Home office. This homeowner wanted to celebrate the coast from her landlocked town via nautical charts on the walls and this sailboat, can be viewed from other rooms in the house, even when these glass doors are closed. Teaser: This interior designer will be sharing how she created the nautical chart wall in an upcoming Houzz Tour.
This nautical-themed space is in what's known as an "away room," which is a quiet spot that can be isolated from the rest of the house. Part of smart, sustainable design is to plan for the future and provide multiple uses within the floor plan. While a current owner needs an office, this room also connects to a full, ADA-accessible bath and can serve as a first floor bedroom if their needs should change or if future owners have different needs. The doors have been outfitted for window treatments for privacy should this change ever take place.Here's how you can make a fabulous nautical chart wall
Nautical PrintsTake one model boat and mix it with a nautically inspired wallpaper, and you have a vintage take on the classic coastal look. I just love this mix — it's simple, and it works in any room.

The door design can be used for the pocket kitchen doors at 238. Use hazy glass to let light in but obscure the view (privacy) into laundry room. The doors are made of board-reverse-batten and with the x design, look barn like yet coastal.
