A House in Cambridge

Cambridge, MA

The theme, atypical in traditional New England houses, was to open the private side of the house to nature, to create a dynamic relationship between the Garden and the Hearth. The strength of this relationship has been increased through axial organization, generously proportioned high spaces and tall windows, defined and supported by mahogany-clad blued steel columns which relate to the height of the trees beyond. Precious to their owners, books have been housed in every room. As a reflection of (and a haven from) their active lives as world-traveling scientists, the house exudes both energy and calm in its composition of eclectic shapes, spaces, and materials.
