Martha's Vineyard Residence
A new house on twenty-nine acres of ocean front property in Chilmark. The concrete and glass structure will be low and modestly scaled to sit gently on the terrain. It consists of a 1,450 sf one-bedroom residence attached by a breezeway to a 950 sf spa with indoor lap pool. The project is designed to Passive House standards for optimal sustainability. Automated shutters of perforated stainless steel provide shading to the 120-foot-long south-facing glass facade when raised, and storm protection when closed. The project includes extensive landscaping to protect fragile wetlands and restore the meadows of the former sheep farm.
