With Hither creek on one side and Madaket harbor on the other, this site is quite unique. The architecture was created to merge with the dune, beach and existing natural landscape. A low rambling composition of small masses and level changes nestle the architecture into the landscape and create a safe and cozy home at the water’s edge.

The primary spaces within the floor plan are centered on the harbor, while the secondary spaces bob and weave back into the dune. They are playful and whimsical spaces that intertwine through creative circulation patterns and intimate exterior spaces. The materials and detailing maintain the maritime traditions of Nantucket.
