Sachem’s Head House

This house, overlooking the Thimble Islands, provides a summer base for a family of six. The owners asked us to rebuild and improve an existing residence, built in the late ‘70’s; we were ultimately able to retain only part of the foundation, but the original forms reappear in the house’s new incarnation. The first floor is a series of overlapping spaces that open to each other and face the sea; a two-storey bridge provides dramatic dining on the first floor, with a family hang-out space above. Enormous sliding glass panels open the public rooms to the outside and capture breezes during the hot summer months. The house is clad inside and out with bleached cedar.
