When the stars align magic can happen!
I was hired by Caroline Hirsch, to work with her and her architect Francis Fleetwood on a new Shingle Style home on a five acre parcel situated on the Atlantic Ocean and Mecox Bay – a site beyond compare….
Reading Vincent Scully’s book The Shingle Style was an infectious and life-changing way to start what has become a life-long study of architectural history; it was amazing to have the opportunity to apply many of the ideas in the book from the ground-up. It was life altering.
There was a long process of design and design development for this significant home, which I did while simultaneously developing and collecting a house full of authentic items from the 1870’s-1930’s.
I still love this project, and while I would certainly approach some things differently today, I am still very proud of it.
