The Cottage at Gatherum

The Cottage at Gatherum is a new private residence overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The new cottage and garage are adjacent to a large historic house known as Gatherum, which is also owned by the client. The project emphasized making the new Cottage and its supporting structures complement, not compete with, the historic house. Creative use of dormers allowed the Cottage to keep its massing secondary to the existing house while a partially open plan and extensive built-in millwork helped maximize space and take advantage of the 360-degree views of open meadows and ocean. A focus on sustainability included integrating solar panels into the design of the roof of the garage, utilization of reclaimed wood through the house and porch, and maximizing native plantings.
