House on a Point

The site for this residence is the bowl of a retired gravel pit on a quiet coastal peninsula. The orientation invites southern sun into all the principal spaces, while the slope of the pit is used as a berm against northerly winter winds. A principal goal was to create a sequence of rooms that presented volumetric complexity, while providing a constant play between interior and exterior exposure. At times, the view to the outside is framed and limited; at other points along the way, the corners of the rooms are opened fully to invite in the world outside.

What product/wood was used to make the kitchen cabinets? - Thank you for any information you can give me on the product or wood used to make the kitchen cabinets. They are stunning! In fact, the entire kitchen is spectacular.

Greetings! Thanks for your inquiry and kind words. The cabinets are made from Maple and Walnut. The countertops are cut from a locally-sourced granite.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The curved profile of the roof is the project's most distinct design feature, one that was inspired by boatbuilding. This is appropriate, given the client's love of sailing. The shape of the roof is picked up with these Y-shaped curved members that land in the middle of some custom millwork.
