Waterway House


This residence at the water's edge offers a family of three boating from their backyard and views across the channel and over to the beach to check the surf. Desiring a home where they could enjoy the benefits of beach life, this couple wanted a house that would be rooted in the vernacular of this coastal village but venture a little outside the norm. Using the archetypal "gable-roofed box surrounded by a covered porch" as a point of departure, the design blurs the distinction between inside and out. Extending from the ground level loggia to a contemporary "widows walk", a broad porch weaves itself up and around two shingle-clad boxes creating living spaces sometimes inside, sometimes outside, and sometimes in between.
