This Kittery Point home located on Garrish Island presented some unique and exciting design considerations for us. Built in the 1970s, it is literally the shape of a hexagon – meaning that there are no right angles to work with! Because of its age, there were also some issues with the original construction that required us doing some significant work to bring the structural issues up to modern standards. Our primary focus was to redesign their outdated and dysfunctional kitchen and renovate their master bedroom and bathroom. However, because of the small size of the home, the project ended up being a renovation of most of the first floor, creating a clean-lined, consistent feel throughout the home. With a fireplace and staircase located in the center of the hexagon, we focused on maximizing the views of the ocean from the dining room, living room, kitchen, and master suite. The proximity to the water informed the modern cottage style that we enhanced with rift sawn oak cabinets colored with pickling stain white-wash; soft whites and neutrals from C2 Paint; Fiji White countertops from ColorQuartz; porcelain tile from Anatolia Tile & Stone; and white wooden tile from Casa dolce casa.
