• Location: Gloucester, MA


We started with a very simple, plain guest cottage, so simple in fact, we discovered it was not even on a foundation. A full renovation and landscape master plan later, it has come to life as an inviting summer retreat. A welcoming entry porch was added which beckons visitors and invites lingering in the porch rockers while looking back out at the expansively landscaped front yard. The s

creen porch was added along with several private garden “rooms” to tie the interior to the natural environment. A water feature is centered on a delicately inlaid terrace rosette within the main garden room. The moss and lichen started to grow within the rosette paving, upon completion, giving the space an immediate feeling of deeply grounded history.
