This suburban, master suit + two guest room house, sits on the back half of a long lot. The project started as an addition to a modest 60’s Cape Cod. The dominate gable roof lines are all that survive of the original cottage. The Teal House is “thin” in order to accommodate standard construction and to provide natural light on two sides of every room, which sometimes makes the house transparent. A sense of precise simplicity is manifest in the house down to the simple trims and an exemplary paint job.
