Maximum Technology, Minimum Impact
The Boardwalk House is a single family residence on Nantucket. Situated in scrub forest, wood boardwalks connect the home with the pool, beach, and outlying buildings. This residence blurs the lines between interior and exterior, allowing for effortless transition between the two.
A key design consideration was minimizing the visual impact of the technology in the space. It was important that the systems we designed would complement the minimalist approach to interior finishes.
Architectural speakers were plastered into the ceiling, motorized drapery tracks and shade pockets were hidden in the frames of the windows, and strategically placed wall keypads or tabletop remotes provided lighting and shading control without fuss.
To seamlessly extend the living space outdoors, landscape lighting tied into the main control system. Hidden landscape speakers on the decks and by the pool can be controlled through the same app as the indoor distributed audio.
