The Art of Remodeling

One of the privileges of architecture is to breathe new life into existing homes. It’s an opportunity to identify and draw out beauty in old spaces.

As we went about remodeling this 1980s spec home, we drew inspiration from the homeowners’ love artistry and shingle style homes on the Nantucket seaside.

A Space for Art

What began as a dated 1980s spec house evolved into a timeless home for an artist and his collection. Artistry saturates the residence as the home wraps itself around the extensive collection at every turn. Custom cabinets showcase colorful glass pieces and delicate nooks house vibrant paintings. Connected to the main living area, a new art studio creates a spacious, functional gallery and workspace within the home.

A Space of Comfort

Upstairs, architect Eric Drivdahl, in partnership with Dibble Engineers and Stark Construction, raised the ceilings and roof of the home (literally) to create a more open and appealing air. The remodeled master suite now presents a fresh space to begin and end the day. Natural light floods the clean, white, bathroom and highlights carrera marble and mosaic tiling.

Every corner, every inch of the home reflects beauty while never forsaking comfort and familiarity. Remodeling a home presents unique challenges and unique opportunities, and when carefully planned and executed, it allows homeowners to redeem a property and transform a house into a home.
