Jamestown, RI Residence

By day this contemporary shingled home floats over a sea of green, absorbing the ever changing sun and clouds. A view of Newport Harbor is readily available from mostly every room.

A combination of stone, glass, wood and metal in a cantilevered form floats effortlessly above the sea of green.

Simple materials wrap the interior of this beach side home; maple wood, stainless steel and porcelain tile.

An open living and dining room space allow for uninterrupted views. Furniture and fixtures were chosen to not distract but rather to accentuate natural elements.

The master suite facing the Newport Harbor is comprised of all seaglass tones, and also features an integrated desk space.

The second floor is comprised of three guest rooms and a sunny light filled hallway with a nautical bunk style built-in.

As the day fades away, the exterior elements also begin to fade into the surrounding woods.

The parking pad and approach to this seaside home is a warm combination of natural materials and shapes.
