The house on Gordon’s Pond is a new, year-round home that was designed to replace an old summer house on the same lot in
North Shores, a coastal community just north of Rehoboth Beach Delaware. The design was greatly influenced by the site and the owners’ seemingly competing goals for the home. She wanted a strong connection to the front of the property so that she could interact with neighbors as they pass by while he wanted the house to be a private place away from the daily realities of work. He envisioned a cool, contemporary interior while she dreamed of warm, cozy living spaces. They both needed a quiet spot within the house to retreat to during frequent visits from their young grandsons. To create the private spot away from the grandkids, the Master Suite was pulled away from the main house and towards the private, state park. Set in its own one story volume, the master bedroom is removed from the commotion of the rest of the house and the north facing wall of glass offers peaceful, private views of the wildlife areas. The design includes two screened porches, one on the front and one on the park side of the house, to balance the clients’ competing goals for privacy and publicity. The exposed timber framing in the living spaces gives the home a warm yet contemporary style.
