disappearing act

When a couple with strong family ties to Virginia Beach began looking at architects to design their new oceanfront home, finding the right local firm proved to be a challenge. Luckily, there were family ties to New York too. “Her father said: ‘I know Bob Stern!’ and made the introduction,” says Gary Brewer, a partner in Robert A.M. Stern Architects’ Park Avenue office. The result is a design for a home on the Atlantic that’s a legacy not just for the clients, but for the resort town as well. Snugged into a tight, 100-by-150-foot, double lot one block east of Atlantic Avenue, it’s a two-story, 7,000-square-foot affair that looks much smaller. That’s because of a smart and sensitive architectural sleight-of-hand from Brewer and his design team. “When you look at the house from…

From its high perch on the bluffs of Martha’s Vineyard, this coveted parcel delivers big views due east over Nantucket Sound. Dubbed “Big Bluff,” the home sits near the tip of East Chop, the northernmost head of land in the town of Oak Bluffs. East Chop Lighthouse is just down the street, and East Chop Drive—popular with walkers, joggers, and bicyclists for its stunning scenery—winds around the property’s outer edge. The lot’s original home was a beloved fixture in the historic neighborhood; however, it ultimately succumbed to lack of upkeep and weather exposure. When the property changed hands in 2017, the new owners tasked island-based Hutker Architects with designing a Shingle-style structure honoring the original’s character. Meanwhile, they turned to Dan Gordon Landscape Architects to develop a landscape befitting the prominent…

When Greg Lombardi drives to his weekend home in Provincetown, Massachusetts, on Friday nights, he pauses on the front porch to listen to the billowing song of the plants swaying in the darkness. Sometimes he is so eager to see what has grown or changed in his absence that he inspects the garden with a flashlight. Lombardi, a noted landscape architect, and his partner, Kent Newton, bought the home in 2017 “as an escape hatch” from their fast-paced Boston lives. They first came across the historic 1960s home when a friend booked it as a vacation property for a group getaway. “I pulled up in front of this forlorn house and felt heartbroken,” Lombardi remembers. “I thought, How am I going to spend a week in this place?” But it grew…
