Contemporizing the Vernacular

Contemporizing the Vernacular

Residential Designer Erik Peterson of Peterson Design Group created visual interest on the facade of this cottage-style beach house with varied fenestration including an eyebrow and oculus window, horizontal banding, and slightly flared gables with decorative detailing at the peaks. The second floor cantilevers over the first, allowing for columns below. When the beach-facing side of the home
gets chilly, a banquette on the curved porch offers views of the marsh. The house is built on piers with PVC slatting and storage on the
ground level.
