North End Virginia Beach Home

This project focused on completely renovating a one story stucco cottage in much need of repair, and creating a new single family residence with an attached apartment. The residence was designed by David Amory AIA,of Boston, Massachussets, and was particularly interesting in that it combined the exteriors of a large beach styled tidewater home, covered in cedar shingles with one end displaying gentle curves in its driveway and entrance while the interiors showcased a much more contemporary flair with high vaulted ceilings that mirrored cresting waves with cleverly designed rooms that incorporated a sense of space within the need to accommodate the confines of a long narrow lot. Landscaping design provided by Sukie Amory was a gentle and seamless collection of local perennials that added to the seemingly timeless and natural connective aspects of the property and house.
