Eastern Point VistaContemporary Home Office, Boston

The selective restoration of this ocean front home pays homage to its nautical environment. The study in particular was designed to emulate the pilothouse of a ship; the ceiling resembles the ribs of the inner carcass of a boat hull; materials like holly, teak and mahogany replicate boat materials; to amplify the effect. Yacht designer Joe Artese provided authentic yachting details in millwork and trim.

    Thanks for your question rebrachler. We do not like to release the cost of items, even if it's a ballpark number. The cost of replicating these built-ins can vary between locations, material selection and cost, cost of a millworker/designer, ect. This project was also done sometime ago which makes the price fluctuate as well. We wouldn't want to give you an outdated number. We also do not release cost out of respect to our clients.

    Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of the exterior roof. Here's a better picture of the ceiling if that helps you.

    Thanks for the question Maramay! Unfortunately, these cabinets are a custom piece built for this particular client and out of respect for them we can't release the plans to the public. Sorry about that! I can tell you that everything was built out of mahogany.

    Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, we can't recall where the flooring was purchased. It is teak and holly wood flooring.

    Thanks for your question! The custom ceiling detail remains curved throughout to resemble the shape of a boat. See the link below, it's a better image of the ceiling.

    Hi! Unfortunately, this desk can't be purchased. It was custom made for the client.

4. Captain’s quarters. Sure, this office with a view isn’t boat-shaped, but it doesn’t need to be when it’s designed after the pilothouse of a ship. Looking out that window behind the desk, it’s easy to imagine the captain of industry who likely works here as the captain of an ocean liner instead.

He likes color and idea of turning around to work too to look out window
