Lake Front Renovation
Located on a large kettle pond in the Cape Cod town of Brewster, this commission entailed a complete reconfiguration of a 1960s split level ranch. The primary objectives was to provide a sense of order in the house, establish a more graceful entry experience, enhance the water views and introduce abundant natural light.
Without increasing the footprint, Hammer Architects was able to create a more spacious feeling home by adding windows and patio doors on water view side of the home, raising the ceiling and installing a new wood and steel roof truss above the living and dining rooms. We also removed a large central brick fireplace and installed a modern fireplace in the new library, created by repurposing the original entry hall.
