Architect Greg Jones
Inspired by an 1876 carriage house, this new brick gambrel incorporates some of the best of modern and antique design and construction. Architect Greg Jones, of the firm Wise Surma Jones Architects in New Bedford, was given the challenge of providing functional space and modern conveniences, such as an exercise room, within a small footprint. “He listened,” the homeowner says of Jones. Exquisite details abound, from the imported clay chimney pots to window muntins—the dividers between window panes—that coordinate with the design. Interior woodwork, milled from 300-year-old reclaimed wood, is patterned in Arts and Crafts style, giving the home a bit of the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright.
Architect Mark Hutker
Built in 1964, this Cape-style home has evolved over the years. In the latest renovation, architect Mark Hutker managed to add function without compromising the exterior. Raising the roof rendered more space for upstairs bedrooms and gave an expanded sense of openness and light. Enlarging a window in the living room created a lovely window seat. The owners credit the late interior designer Judith Ross with the charming interior. “We have small rooms in our house, and wanted a beach-y feel,” the owner says. “She accomplished this for us extremely well.”
