White Oaks Residence

Entertaining Spaces

In this renovation to a 1980s 'Cape Cod', interior walls are removed and rooms are extended into the landscape to transform a closed-plan layout into intimate entertaining spaces that connect with the park-like surroundings. The kitchen and screened porch addition, master suite with roof deck, home office spaces, and window seats have generous views of the landscape. Oak, birch, and cherry flooring, built-in furniture, and cabinetry establish a warm material palette and link rooms throughout the house. The White Oaks Residence renovation culminates in a double-height tent-like space with a wooden ceiling and panoramic windows for performances on the clients' Bosendorfer Imperial grand piano.
