Chatham, Massachusetts, United States
Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects designed this playful summer home on the highest point of the most southeasterly part of Cape Cod. The firm designed the home to show as a one-and-a-half storey residence as you approach down the driveway. The rear facade rises three storeys providing over 4,600 square feet of interior space. Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects: “A small and fanciful third floor porch is held up on whimsical brackets and is crowned with an evocative screen wall, shaped as if about to take flight. Like the screen wall, the interiors include flat, playful shapes that give a robust but friendly feeling. The generous living spaces are open to one another and set up to accommodate casual living for large groups of family and friends.” There is also a detached carriage house designed in the same fashion as the main house.
