Cape Cod has deep roots in Modernism, once the stomping grounds of many of our Bauhaus and early Modernist designers. Hammer Architects undoubtedly must have thought of these talented forbearers when designing this home.
This house, perched on a bluff with views to the Pamet River, a fresh water pond and the Atlantic Ocean, embodies the early Modernist principles: an open plan, local materials, and expressed structure. The 2,900 square-feet space sits on a three acre site within the Cape Cod National Seashore. Sensitively sited within the landscape, the windows frame views and provide natural ventilation. The red cedar siding and bluestone pavers not only are locally sourced, but also reference the early Modernist’s construction.
