Meadow Beach House / Andrew Franz Architect

Meadow Beach House

Meadow Beach House was designed in 2016 by Andrew Franz Architect. This new house on Martha’s Vineyard is conceived as a casual and comfortable modern cottage.

The home is inspired by the spirit of Victorian oceanside cottage vernacular with an overlay of Scandinavian modernism and responds to the sundrenched light and calming views of the beach and meadow. A casual and comfortable spirit is conveyed through simple, natural materials that will perform well in the coastal environment.

The house consists of two structures — connected at the second level and below grade – with a number of decks and a crow’s nest. The design employs passive environmental practices to achieve a highly energy-efficient solution and a well-crafted, high performing cottage for multiple generations.

Whidbey Farm Designed as Both Vacation House and Part-Time Residence

Out of respect for turn-of-the-century farm buildings on the site, the Whidbey Farm carefully tucks into nearby forest. Perched on a low hill, the house looks over existing buildings, bucolic cattle fields, a cat-tail edged pond, and the forest itself.
Lockeport Beach House

Lockeport Beach House by Nova Tayona Architects

Despite its dramatic location on an expanse of shoreline, the clients also were drawn to the internal, cozy character of the site, and so, Lockeport Beach House is an oxymoron. Scraggly tamarack and spruce trees covered in Old Man’s Beard are very particular to some areas of Nova Scotia and thrive in the 10 cm of shallow soil here.
