Architect Mark Hutker

Tour de Force

Overlooking Black Beach and Great Sippewissett Marsh, this West Falmouth home blends earth-rendered materials with panoramic views, stamping it as a natural beauty: a glass wall that overlooks Black Beach, stone and marble floors, and an exterior designed to weather with time, including red copper sidewall shingles. Some of the most intriguing features incorporated in this Mark Hutker design are a roof that produces a waterfall outside a front window when rain falls, the copper-clad entry and kitchen, and a shelf that sheds natural from above. Modern features give it a touch of luxury, such as a private yoga loft, sauna, and hot tub. Handmade custom furniture and artwork are intriguing surprises.

Architect John Dvorsack

Tour de Force

John Dvorsack is known for designing homes that are identified closely with our area, but a lot of his job is putting elusive puzzle pieces together. “It’s taking pieces and making what the client wants,” he says, “making it real and creative.” In this project, a Shingle-style home in North Falmouth, it isn’t a stretch to say the site designed the house. Spacious and light-filled, the home has sweeping views of Buzzards Bay. The entrance itself provides a direct view to the sunroom and pool. There is plenty of playfulness here, too, including a hidden office reachable through a secret passage in the foyer.
