TWO SHEDS HOUSE
The house is made of two long shed buildings that evoke the agrarian history of Martha’s Vineyard. The buildings are similar in form — modified gables and cedar board siding — and are connected by a common glass entry that joins the two volumes and pulls visitors out into the landscape. Three guest bedrooms and the master suite are in one volume, and the living spaces and large covered porch are in the other, organized around a common deck and lap pool, all of which share the adjacent shoreline and ocean. All rooms of the house are drawn into the site through large glazed openings that dissolve boundaries between house, deck, and landscape, ultimately creating a relaxed and generous environment for this Boston-based family.
A guesthouse and garage pavilion is a third new building, located closer to the driveway and road.
