Beacon Street Residence
A young professional couple approached us to help them reorient the interior spaces of their house to take advantage of incredible water views, and to improve the flow between rooms to accommodate the arrival of a new child. To this end, we devised a range of possible plan reconfigurations and proposed adding dormers and a deep farmer’s porch to the front of the house. To ensure a contextual relationship between the new exterior and the surrounding structures, we analyzed local precedents in the town’s Old and Historic District. We also worked with the wife, a landscape architect, to stitch together new interior and exterior circulation pathways, the porch, and a new terrace to allow holistic indoor/outdoor living. A new exterior structure in the garden supports this outdoor living, functioning as a workshop, potting shed, and storage for canoes, bikes, kayaks and other equipment.
“It was a true pleasure to work with the talented team at Jones Architecture. Rick and his staff were on time, well organized and always had their head tightly wrapped around the design challenge. We found them to be thoughtful listeners and intuitive designers. They transformed our home inside and out, while fulfilling the requirements of our historic district.”
