Architect Greg Jones
The owner calls this renovated home “the little big house.” Originally a ranch-style dwelling built in 1963, its modern incarnation has little in common with the original. Today, the home’s open plan, spacious windows, and French doors provide a light-filled interior and plenty of room for family. Architect Greg Jones consciously incorporated the spirit of the Cape’s seaside character. “Materials, textures, and massing all reflect the sensibilities of an environment that is always under assault by wind and water,” Jones says. In fact, some of the home’s most creative features hark to a ship’s interior, with built-in storage, bookcase, and window seat.
Architect Denise Bonoli
Architect Denise Bonoli of Falmouth calls this contemporary home a model to teach other clients about good organization. “The owner came to me with a binder organized into sections for each room,” Bonoli says. The result is a gracious home that perfectly marries structural design with the owner’s antique family furniture and keepsakes. An open kitchen with marble countertops is a warm place for friends and family to gather. The homeowner’s Southern roots show up particularly in the orchid room and enclosed courtyard garden, both special places for her and her grown children. “I’m about as Southern as you can get,” she says. “When guests come to the front door, I want them to be enveloped in warmth and hospitality.”
