On this lot overlooking the Goodwives River stood a typical garrison colonial house. Our client was not interested in tearing down, but she had very specific ideas of what the finished home should portray while respecting the original design. Her early description of an “‘arts and crafts’ Asian-inspired renovation” were carefully considered. True to our client’s wishes, Cardello Architects reflected the desired look with large overhangs, detailed trim, and mahogany columns on the front porch. We gave the new home a slightly modern spin that focused itself on the interior. The finished product reflects the clients’ ‘arts and crafts’ concept with a New-England-feel that respects the homes’ colonial roots.
