Addition and Renovation to a Coastal Home

The existing structure was a dark and depressing brick-veneered house built in the 1960’s on a wooded lot a quarter mile from the ocean. The gambrel roofed main volume had been previously added on to with various small appendages and rear dormers. An existing screened porch and pool in the rear overlooked a public pedestrian path that leads to the ocean.
The design intention was to transform this little house into an airy, light-filled beach cottage in the tradition of the shingle styled beach houses up and down the Eastern Seaboard. A further goal was to achieve all this with only a few simple changes and added design features.
The street appearance was completely changed by adding a new porch with French doors and cladding the walls and the roof with cedar shingles. In the rear, a new covered porch and the reorganization of a screened porch with the new pool deck transform the space. We organized the flow of the first floor by opening up the small entry stair hall. We widened all the existing small openings between the entry, family room, dining room, and living room and completely removed the separation between the kitchen and family room. Upstairs, bedrooms and bathrooms were reorganized and renovated while a new shed dormer expanded a small low ceiling corridor. Finally, the addition of a pergola behind the pool against the rear lot line completes the rear outdoor room and screens foot traffic on the rear public path.
This project was honored an award from Builder Magazine in October, 2006.
