Smith Cottage

Most clients with a water view ask us to design a house with lots of glass that looks at the view. Imagine our surprise when the Smiths told us the view was important, but Denise’s artwork and furnishings are just as important. We needed to design spaces with walls that frame the art, as well as windows that frame the view. It helps that the lot faces South. Broad porches create outside rooms shading glass walls facing the view. Perpendicular walls provide wall space for art. Different places to be for different things to do.
