Transformation of the Week by:
Architect Roc Caivano's clients charged him with designing a new summer house that would preserve as much of the existing landscape as possible—no mean feat, considering the steep site was mostly granite, populated by spruce trees, and hard against a road on the uphill side. The solution involved an 11° bend in the plan (taking advantage of the stunning ocean views) and cedar trellises as siding. Once the clematis and hydrangea mature, the house will look as if it has been there forever.
