Rice Island
Cohasset, MA
An existing 1950s kit house was slowly and lovingly renovated over the course of a decade, resulting in a character that matches the coastal area and the owner's interest in boats. We maintained the massing of the original house, while adding changes in section and new bays that open it up and connect it to the site in an entirely new way. The structure's classic forms and symmetry are a nod to Robert Venturi, while the interiors feature reclaimed materials and have an airy Japanese aesthetic.
