Gloucester, MA



A new two-family home on a tight, steep lot overlooking the historic fishing harbor of Gloucester Massachusetts. Designed and constructed to conform to the existing ledge outcropping on the site, this house was built to capture the sweeping views of the working harbor, with generous decks connected directly to the interior living spaces through sliding glass doors. The two units are carefully stacked and terraced into the slope, accessed by separate driveways. The building was constructed to very efficient energy specs, with European triple glazed windows and doors, roof top solar panels, and airtight construction achieve the highest energy star ratings for both units.
