A glass and wood summer home along the Cape Cod
This glass and wood summer home can be found along the Cape Cod coast in the midst of sand dunes and salty winds.The home, with glass facades that literally seem to melt into the low bushes, grass and sand dunes, is found far out on Cape Cod.
The many windows reflect the sea and the sky. Only the wooden window frames with their graphic square pattern break with the soft lines of nature. Everything in the house is made of wood and glass, except for the chimney and the house’s structural elements, which are made of concrete. Walls, floors, ceiling and facades. Hard-wearing Cedar was selected for the exterior of the house. Durable Oak was selected for the inside. The same natural Oak flooring is used throughout the entire house, except for the bedroom where the floor is stained, making it just a bit warmer and a shade darker. The open areas are awash in daylight and offer a fantastic view. The masonry fireplace is set in the middle and divides the area into rooms.
Danish period furniture is mixed with Italian and Scandinavian design classics.
There are two black chairs in front of the fireplace, as well as a small table from Eero Saarinen’s Tulip series. Comfortable leather chairs accompany the dining room table, with a PH lamp designed by Danish architect Poul Henningsen hanging above. The kitchen is covered in wood from floor to ceiling. Grayish black tiles and sleek black barstools, part of Harry Bertoia’s iconic wire collection, were selected for the kitchen. In the bedroom we see an Oak armchair with webbing from the Swedish furniture designer Bruno Mathsson.
