There are some buildings that blend in with the landscape so well they become a part of the Earth. They take on the characteristics of the surrounding environment and the people that live there. This home perhaps more than most. It was designed and built by an architect in the 1950s for his family. Set back from the road, this house uses vertical siding to blend in with the trees in the surrounding woods. It’s a home full of memories. In 2003 the architect’s son moved in with a family of his own, and brought a whole new generation of life into the home.
One of the first signs of fall is when the windows start to close. As New Englanders, it is a nearly universal point of pride to keep them open for as long as possible. When the days get shorter and the wind gets colder, the windows start to come down. Closing the windows sets off a chain reaction. It’s a signal that there is more work to be done around the home with the changing of the seasons.
After 6 months of pandemic and the city, this family knew it was time for a change. They wanted to create their first home. It wasn’t the greatest time to buy, and there were so many unknowns in the world. But they had a dream, and so they went for it. Sometimes you just have to take the leap.
You can feel the history as you stroll down the streets of Newburyport. Historical landmarks are everywhere, but even the places that don’t bear that mark still have an heir of history. Classic New England architecture and styles like divided lights are everywhere. It’s a feeling that we know and love. But it’s also something that presents a challenge. Everyone wants to preserve that feeling of history, but we also want our homes to feel modern and stylish. Crane Properties has shown us that you can do both.
The sun lies low over the snow-covered mountains, reflecting its dazzling light on the surface of the Romsdalsfjord. The view enjoyed by the residents of the Molde house in Norway is like a painting – all thanks to the Schüco FWS 35 PD.SI façade system, which has been installed here in Norway for the first time. Large expanses of glass and narrow profiles create the perfect connection between living space and the surrounding nature.
