Pretty Coastal

Our clients summered in Narragansett for years and decided it was time to build a retreat they could enjoy year round. But the typical beach house wasn’t quite what our traditionally-spirited, Philadelphia-raised clients envisioned. Traditional materials, architectural details and millwork were incorporated into the shingle style home to bring the ‘bit of fancy’ they yearned for in their version of a coastal home.

Lesson Learned from Habour Island Haven

Key Takeaway

Designing for grandchildren means designing spaces for experiences that can happen spontaneously during a stay-over at Grandma and Grandpa's. A cozy bench seat with lighting next to a bookcase and a place for the kayaks make it easy to make memories.
