Hamptons Cottage Renovation
Having recently completed a new pool house and pool, the owners of this property turned their attention to the renovation and expansion of the main cottage facing a shared common green. The program included the additions of a new screened porch, mudroom, first floor bedroom, and expanding into attic and basement areas. Staying true to the rather straightforward character of the salt-box form, the seamless addition of new program was achieved by expanding the entire house the length of one bay and by matching the proportions of existing windows, shingles, and trim. The screened porch with it’s “filled-in” mudroom was treated as an additive element, meant to complement the new landscape designed by Ashley Christopher and provide a much-needed covered outdoor room for the main cottage.
