Urban Infill

Sitting on a cozy lot next to a busy street in the popular North Shore neighborhood, this home was built for empty-nesters who are artists and art collectors. Our clients wanted to express a modern aesthetic, but energy efficiency and easy maintenance were also big on their wish list. We were also tasked with constructing the house within very tight setbacks on a steeply sloping lot, all while preserving a large oak tree at the front of the property.

With design partner Workshop: Architecture, we created a private, light-filled space that serves to display the couple’s extensive art collection. Careful attention to details such as an open-riser stair and emphasize the contemporary design. Advanced framing and carefully planned insulation helped us deliver an airtight home that minimizes energy use.
