The Rock House

The owners, a retired couple, wanted their old summer house, set on a large coastal rock formation, extensively renovated inside and out. The design goal was to keep its original seaside character and sense of place but with a contemporary feel. The original simple form of the house with its porch and roof dormers was extended to retain the traditional character of the house. The enlarged modern kitchen is incorporated into the main living spaces. Details inside and out were kept simple for the summer beach cottage feel
