SCITUATE IN-LAW EXPANSION

Scituate, MA

Programmatically, the Scituate Expansion Project was as much about bringing people together as keeping them apart – the inherent dichotomy of an in-law apartment. From the exterior the house needed to be homogenous, belying the distinct separation of access, circulation, and private areas that were to define the new Accessory Dwelling Unit. Careful consideration was paid to scale and structure; vaulted ceilings were combined with light wells (in the form of dormers that complimented the existing house) to provide a sense of expanse but were built with exaggerated structural elements to withstand the 110 MPH winds as required by code.

The goal was to create an area that felt spacious and livable while remaining within the existing footprint.   The accessory dwelling appears larger than 850 SF due to the bright, open floor plan, contrasted with dark wood floors and carefully designed details. 

Keri has an outstanding eye for design. No small detail was overlooked. From the high ceilings to the breakfast nook, each space was made to fit our lifestyle.

Keri listened to our priorities and made the best use of our space, exceeding our expectations. She worked with us through construction, providing advice on interior design. We wanted to keep within the existing footprint of our house, and have it appear seamless- as if it was always meant to be a part of the house- rather than an after thought addition. Keri designed a space that not only addressed our needs but exceeded them. The apartment is light, spacious, functional, and completely integrated into the original house. She was easy to work with, responsive, and took our own ideas into consideration.
