1930s Stone Dutch Colonial Cottage Renovated by Vicente-Burin Architects

United States

Vincente-Burin Architects is an award winning architectural firm based in Fairfield, Connecticut. Established in 1999, the firm had the opportunity to renovate a fabulous stone Dutch Colonial originally designed by Connecticut architect Fraser Forman Peters. The charming home was built in the 1930s and later renovated and added onto in the 1960s. The dark, choppy and outdated additions were demolished and replaced with new ideas by Vincente-Burin Architects. “The task was to create bright interiors that were well connected to one another and to seamlessly link the many levels of the existing home. ┬áThe additions were designed in the same spirit of the original; material selections were made to maintain the quality and solidity, and the long sweeping asymmetrical roof lines are in keeping with the cottage feel.” The firm introduced large expanses of glass to create a sense of indoor/outdoor and let in natural sunlight. The firm noted, “The family room fireplace anchors the space and echoes the exterior stonework. ┬áThe interiors were designed in keeping with the Arts & Crafts vocabulary.”
