a sense of place

I HAD THE PLEASURE of catching architect Gil Schafer’s lecture on his new book, A Place to Call Home: Tradition, Style, and the Memory of the New American House, when he visited Boston. I arrived just as Schafer was being introduced to a packed audience. Like everyone in the lecture hall at the Boston Design Center that day, I was mesmerized not only by the beautiful projects showcased but also by his compelling message: “A house that makes you feel happy, welcome, and secure is a success no matter the style of architecture or the degree of lavishness.” He went on to discuss how, although he is a Classical architect, his designs respond to a set of circumstances—site, climate, and lifestyle all come into play. He also described in detail some…

coastal kitchen a fresh take on traditional design.

“We tried to create an eclectic mix of materials so it feels almost accumulated,” says interior designer Michael Cox. FOR HOMES in Rowayton, Connecticut, having a glorious view of the water and a well-appointed kitchen is not unusual. But it’s a rare house that features an octagonal breakfast nook surrounded by windows overlooking the harbor. Mac Patterson of Austin Patterson Disston Architects brought this fresh element to a new build that required an open-but-intimate design. The homeowners enjoyed the openness of modern living spaces but also wanted each room to feel distinct. “People are more used to having the rooms be much more open,” says Patterson. “That’s not what they were looking for.” Accordingly, the breakfast nook connects to both the kitchen and the family room, serving as a connector between them, but…

style lesson

MOST KITCHEN renovation projects involve careful—even painstaking—planning around cabinet placement and design. But rarely does the attention to detail extend to every corner of every drawer, both inside and out When a family of five came to Jewett Farms + Co. and project interior designer Holly Gagne for a complete kitchen renovation project in their Hopkinton, Massachusetts, home, it was clear that that is exactly what they wanted. With three kids and an active life, the homeowners needed a way of preventing life’s clutter from taking over. “They had a very good sense as far as what a functional kitchen was for them; what that meant,” says Gagne. “They cared as much about what was going on inside the cabinet as the outside look. They went through each space and design. They’d…

Today the kitchen is a stunning vision of stained quarter-sawn white oak with the flourish of custom detailing. WHITE ELEPHANTS, in all their clumsy glory, can be a perfect match for certain homeowners. Lynn and Tom Kassouf have embraced several imperfect, quirky houses with a rare zeal. “We’ve always had white elephants for homes, the ones nobody wanted,” Lynn Kassouf says. When the couple moved into their home in Port Washington, Wisconsin, 18 years ago, they fell in love with the 120-year-old Victorian with its beautiful Arts & Crafts detailing. But the outdated, cramped kitchen stumped them. And, as Lynn says, “the kitchen is where we live.” So when they saw the custom work of Crown Point Cabinetry of Claremont, New Hampshire, the Kassoufs and their Milwaukee architect, Louis Wasserman, knew they…

classic elements

THE OWNERS of a New England Colonial constructed in the 1930s were tired with the low ceilings, cramped rooms, and features designed for a bygone era. The kitchen as outdated, the storage minimal, the windows small. They considered moving away, but realized that they loved the house and their neighbors enough to invest in a thoroughgoing renovation. Working with a carefully chosen architect, builder, and designer, they systematically remade the 7,000-square-foot house without changing much about the exterior appearance. The renovation was so complete that it required reengineering entire portions of the home to raise the ceilings and open up the floorplan. The project’s interior designer, Michael Carter of Carter & Company Interior Design, calls it “a sensitive and artful reinterpretation of the house” that seamlessly joins the residence’s history and…
