Gold BRICC Award
Coastal Farmhouse Revival is a complete remodel of a circa 1825 farmhouse located in the historic Old Kings Highway District of Dennis. The homeowners had a vision of remodeling and restoring the old structure into a summer residence for their family. They appreciated the history of the property and wanted to preserve its character and charm.
To achieve this goal and meet historic district guidelines, they worked closely with the McPhee Associates architectural design team. The renovation project spanned three years in two phases which, in the end, resulted in a remarkable transformation.
Gold BRICC Award
Bay View Bathroom is in the primary suite of this Falmouth home. It is peaceful oasis at one side of the home with unobstructed views of Buzzards Bay. A bright and clean room with a predominantly white palette allows the view and the natural sunlight to dominate the space. A sumptuous, freestanding soaking tub, a private water closet and a double vanity with a polished marble countertop, along with a spacious walk-in shower with marble tile, occupy the space.
The main attraction of this room is the outdoor shower that adjoins the bathroom to the exterior pool area. A door with a porthole looks right out to the pool and all of Buzzards Bay. The round window is small enough to provide privacy from the outside, yet big enough to see the yard, pool and ocean beyond. The door provides access to and from the pool area.
Silver BRICC Award
Simplicity on the Sound is a new construction Cape Cod-style oceanfront house that overlooks Nantucket Sound in Harwich Port. It is a family beach house that replaced a weathered cottage that dated back to 1878.
The decision was made to rebuild on the same footprint, with a new foundation, and add space to the second floor. The owners wanted to maintain the nostalgia the old beach cottage held; therefore, the plan was to keep it simple with a modest floor plan and focus on the ocean view and extraordinary location.
