Woodland RetreatContemporary Exterior, Boston
This new house respectfully steps back from the adjacent wetland. The roof line slopes up to the south to allow maximum sunshine in the winter months. Deciduous trees to the south were maintained and provide summer shade along with the home’s generous overhangs. Our signature warm modern vibe is made with vertical cedar accents that complement the warm grey metal siding. The building floor plan undulates along its south side to maximize views of the woodland garden.

Architecture by Flavin ArchitectsCan You Afford to Hire an Architect?If you don’t see how full architectural services fit into your budget, you might consider hiring one on a limited consultation basis. You could hire a pro at an hourly rate to do a site analysis of a property you’re considering purchasing. You might hire one for an energy consultation, looking at materials and construction details that would give you the best return on your investment. You could hire an architect to act as your representative and project manager during construction. Or you might hire one to help you visualize a renovation to a fixer-upper you’d like to buy.
