This project presented a very interesting challenge for both the homeowners and the architect. The couple inherited a fairly traditional Cape style house on the water in Shippan Point, Stamford CT. The client looked for a Fairfield County architect who would explore renovating the house in a modernist way. In the first meeting, Robert Cardello suggested removing the main central fireplace, which in turn opened up the plan dramatically. A bridge idea was also developed to connect the north and south wings of the house (Master Suite and Children’s Bedrooms). The front maintains its traditional cape-cod style roots, offering subtle hints toward modern, while the back truly exposes the aesthetics of modern home design. On the interiors you’ll find a myriad of finishes that help to reflect the overall simplistic and modern feel of the project.
