Private Residence – Swampscott, Massachusetts
Set in a local historic district blocks from the ocean, this 100 year old home has undergone a variety of transformations in its long history. As part of an overall upgrade to the structure, this small sitting room was converted into an intimate, light-filled reading room, set among the trees at the edge of the property. Using built-in custom millwork shelving, and an attention to detail which celebrates an adjacent brick chimney and the natural wood structure, this room provides a respite from the main areas of the house – celebrating the landscape and natural setting as well as the historic roots of this coastal home.
