About This Project

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 on Shippan Point in Stamford CT.  The client looked for a Fairfield County architect who would explore renovating the house in a modernist style. In the first meeting, Robert Cardello suggested removing the main central fireplace, which in turn opened up the plan dramatically. A bridge concept was also developed to connect the north and south wings of the house between the master suite and children’s bedrooms. The front maintains its traditional Cape Cod roots but offers subtle modern hints, while the back truly exposes the aesthetics of true modern home design. Throughout the interiors you’ll find a myriad of finishes that help to reflect the overall simplistic and modern feel of the project – earning RAC a finalist position at the 2013 A-List Awards for Modern Architecture.
