Nestled in the Maine Woods on Pleasant Lake - this private home is an oasis for a busy Boston family. Whitten Architects perfectly captured the spectacular views with walls of glass and corner windows. All custom millwork was completed in house and creates a symbiotic charm throughout with a mix of natural and painted components.
French architect Pierre Vial, brought us his book of hand drawn sketches and asked us to build a pair of townhouses on Munjoy Hill - a daunting task considering the plans weren't to scale and all needed to be converted. Every detail of this project is unique - from the cabinetry design to the landscaping and Vial's passion for architecture is obvious in every finishing touch. As a company, it was pertinent that we work closely with Vial to ensure we built these townhouses exactly as he envisioned them. (which thankfully - we did!)
The Picnic Basket
Twenty years ago; we built a beautiful 12,000+ square foot estate for these clients so when they asked if we were interested in constructing the art studio; we jumped at the chance. The materials were purposely kept soft and the interiors kept minimal so the ocean colors could take center stage.
Little John Island
This project took almost 2 years to complete due to the sheer number of details in the build. The owners and architect were all from Boston and came up bi-weekly or monthly for progress meetings. This meant that documentation and communication were paramount. Photo journals of progress were sent on a regular basis, phone conferences were the norm and each and every detail was discussed and approved prior to finalization. The main house is meant to look as if it is sitting behind a cascading rock wall. The barn (or "man cave") is nautically influenced and yacht inspired. Each have varying (but beautiful) aesthetics. Sustainable features include the following: geothermal heating and cooling, LED lighting and an air barrier membrane system.
The exterior style matches the expected aesthetic of a typical Maine shingle style home on Prouts Neck. However, the interior surprises and delights; unfolding its treasures as you walk through the home. We built custom millwork throughout; including a set of 4 bunk beds and a barn sliding door at the entryway. The kitchen has a magnificent waterfall island in Carrara Marble. As you move towards the second floor; the steel spiral staircase reveals itself. We were lucky to work with such forward thinking clients whose style truly made this home unique.
This modern home; nestled quietly on a hillside with a bustling community, has a flipped floor plan to maximize the gorgeous ocean views. Creative utilization of space allowed for a "his" and "her" setup as well as a giant cantilevered deck. Other design details worth mentioning: a Murphy bed cleverly hidden in the office storage, floating bookcase in the living room, 9' pocket doors, custom designed and built headboard for the master bedroom with floating bedside tables and a incredible landscaping that integrates the property seamlessly.
Higgins Beach Cottage Duo
We worked through what seemed like an endless winter to deliver this summer get-a-way to our clients. Based in London during the entire length of construction; the finished product was truly a surprise. Our clients wanted to delight their children with this nautically inspired summer retreat and that's exactly what they did. The guest house even has a loft for the kids to hide out after a long day at the beach.
Featuring the works of the homeowner and select artists from around the country; the gallery sits proud of the home behind it. The clients had a contemporary aesthetic which meant bold, crisp, clean lines, unexpected pops of color and bright white paint throughout which pairs beautifully with the natural lighting. While the home itself is a showstopper, the art throughout truly creates a series of brilliant spaces.
Ash Street Building
This commercial office building has a total of four floors; 3 of which are occupied by the Ethos Marketing offices. We built the exterior as well as completed the interior fit-up which was designed by TLA Architects. The owner of the building wanted to provide the occupants with a more organic experience; hence the gorgeous roof deck, multitude of windows and the kayaks out front.
This quaint home required some major renovating in its previous state before becoming suitable for a growing young family. We stripped it down to its bare bones and rebuilt both the exterior and interior to allow for bright, light spaces through-out and a fresh new look.
This 3,800 square foot home features an abundance of custom millwork, coffered and tray ceilings and a mix of styles which provide an intriguing composition throughout the home.
