Friday Reads:  A Sense of Place

Looking for some eye candy to satisfy your appetite for beautiful architecture? I have a wonderful suggestion for you:  local architect Mark Hutker’s A Sense of Place:  houses on Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod, which features thirteen beautiful homes designed by his firm, Hutker Architects.

“Hutker Architects, led by founding principal Mark A. Hutker, has designed more than three hundred houses along the New England shore.  In their design and construction, these houses honor the vernacular traditions of craft and indigenous materials and are deeply respectful of the beauty of the landscape.  As architects, the firm is committed to the principle “Build once, well,” looking to the historic architecture of the region as inspiration for contemporary design.  The result is an architecture that is at once highly contemporary and yet enduring, efficient, inevitable, and appropriate.” (From the front flap.)

Peruse this book and enjoy the beautiful photographs of these fabulous homes.  You can find several ideas here if you are contemplating building or decorating your dream home or redesigning your landscape.
