Rockport, MA

Davis Buckley Architects and Planners (DBA) designed this summer residence on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Rockport, Massachusetts. The house is located within a critical distance from waterfront, requiring extensive landscaping and the incorporation of sustainable, and indigenous plant material. The architectural style of the house reflects the vernacular of homes built along the Massachusetts coastline while incorporating modern amenities and state-of-the-art technologies such as solar thermal panels and nanotechnology. The spacial planning of the interior of the residence was designed to optimize wall space which houses the owner’s extensive collection of late nineteenth and mid-twentieth century paintings.
