From the Publisher

I can’t help but get a little emotional over this milestone, our 20th

Anniversary issue. My children were 1, 5 and 7 years old when I started

Boston Design Guide/BDG. That brings it all home for me. Where has

the time gone? When I page through back issues of the first years, I

recall every photo shoot like it was yesterday. We no longer use film

for our shoots and production, we’re happily rid of dial-up Internet and

while our mobile phones may be attached to our ears, at least they’re

not mounted in our cars.

The homes featured in my first few issues have stood the test of time.

They truly are timeless in design and structure. Of course, quality never

goes out of style. (See pages 18-27 timeless trends/flashback 20 years

ago) And we’re grateful for that, as quality is the backbone of our

publication. It is how we’ve become the “go-to” resource for New England’s home industry, trusted

to showcase only “the best of the best” for a discerning audience for 20 years. It’s also the reason

we spare no expense when it comes to printing and photography. It’s really quite simple; we’ve

achieved success because everything we do in print and online reflects the highest standards. We are

extraordinarily proud of being the coffee table book displayed prominently, that doesn’t get tossed.

As I have said in many of my publisher letters, let us not take for granted (for one minute), but be

reminded and grateful that these beautiful pictures we all “ooh and aah” over were made possible

by homeowners who have allowed the businesses featured within these pages to photograph their

private sanctuaries. It is a true testament to these business professionals who delivered on their

promises and cultivated great relationships.

Reaching this milestone would not be possible if not for all those who have walked beside me

over the past 20 years. I want to thank each and every one of you: family, friends, past and current

employees and staff, as well as our valued clients and vendors. Thank you for guiding me, pushing

me or hitting me over the head. Honestly, I would not be here “cheering” 20 years without you. The

friendships I have built, the support both professionally and personally given to me, the experiences I

have enjoyed…well, it’s humbling to say the least. What a great run it has been. Here’s to many more

years of being the first and longest-running home publication in New England.

Cheers!

The design industry grows as our lifestyles do. It

reflects our individual tastes and trends, as well as the

ever-evolving digital era.

I’ve grown up with the movement of the web and

have seen how much our lifestyles have changed because

of it. My time now is easily divided between the screen

and actual life—and I know I’m not just speaking for

myself on that! I’m often discovering home shopping

websites and apps that deliver straight to your door. There

is always something new coming out. In this digital era the

luxury of convenience is everywhere, but is the quality?

There’s so much available at our fingertips that content

can be misleading, and the allure of getting something

quick and cheap is often traded for having something

custom and long lasting. Twenty years ago when BDG launched, and it was the sole

home resource guide in New England, our mission was clear: to provide our readers

with the best home resources. We strive every day to achieve this online by offering our

followers the simplicity and sophistication that reflects the pages of this publication.

Milestones that

changed the home

industry

“Both hand drawn renderings and CAD drawings

are integral tools in the design process.”

-John and Laura Meyer,

Meyer & Meyer, Inc.

At BDG, we’re grateful to have

relationships with professionals who

have been with us since our inception

20 years ago. Feeling nostalgic, we

combed through the archives to

find milestones that have changed

our industry, coveted New England

designs, and projects showcased

in our first few editions that are

still relevant today. We honor and

highlight some of the best projects

and professionals we’ve encountered.

2000

Outdoor Living

Since the millennium, says Bob Marzilli, of R.P. Marzilli

& Company, New Englanders have shown an

increased interest in “taking the indoors outdoors.”

The demand for creating backyard oases has been

on the rise ever since.

1997

The Advent of CAD

Zhu/Yin Residence

The CAD (Computer Aided Design) revolution

enabled designers to layout and develop work onscreen

and save it for future editing, saving time on

drawings and changes.

2005

The Green Movement

“When people come home, they

want to put their feet up outside. It

creates a whole new world for them.”

- Laura Hopkins,

Seasons Four

(Above) The home built by

Thoughtforms generates

50% more energy than it

used in its first two years,

and is pending LEED

Platinum status.

20th ANNIVERSARY

(Left) LDa Architecture & Interiors is “sharing in Boston’s

multi-unit housing boom,” with more downtown

projects than ever before. The firm attributes the growth

to an “urban/suburban housing swap, where downsizing

baby-boomers and millennials are headed to the city.”

“It has to be one of the most exciting

times to be a builder in Boston.”

- Allison Iantosca,

F.H. Perry Builder

2010

City Living

Allison Iantosca of F.H.

Perry Builder notes that

the demographics have

changed. Unlike years

past, young families are

more eager to immerse

themselves in the city’s

energy and burgeoning

resources.

2017

Technology Advances

TVs have only been

getting bigger and

better. It’s the 4K OLED

(Light Emitting Diode)

TV that has everyone

talking. The screen’s

eye-catching images

can be viewed well at

any angle, unlike earlier

flat-screen models.

Kenneth Vona Construction has employed

a host of techniques, including water

management, “outsulating,” HVAC and

energy consumption and a tight build

envelope, to reduce the strain of carbon

emissions on the environment and bring

peace of mind and savings to homeowners.

“iDevices have taken total

home automation to an

entirely new level”

then&

now

We compare current aspects of home design to those

from 20 years ago, to see what has—or hasn’t—changed.

CREATIVE SYSTEMS

Pass the popcorn, there have been major advances on the home theater front during

the last 20 years. Steve Collotta, president of Creative Systems, asserts that projectors

have been transformed by new technologies. Gone are the days of the three-gun RGB

projectors. Now, high-def 4K laser projectors are the best and brightest. The image

quality is beyond compare, and they make quite an impact on the large screen. Years

ago, you had to dim the lights to catch a flick; these days you can let in the sun.

WESTON KITCHENS

Twenty years ago, there was the view that

American manufacturing was third-rate, explains

James Simko of Weston Kitchens. “If you could

afford it, sleek European cars, appliances,

clothing and cabinets were a ‘must.’” This

earlier European contemporary kitchen design

in light maple and mahogany is an example. Its

streamlined cabinet doors, high-gloss finishes

and gentle curves make it “the pinnacle of

sophisticated luxury.” Today, transitional kitchen

designs are en vogue. While the “quality,

variety and functionality of appliances is quickly

changing,” says Simko, as have the high-quality

storage options,

THEN “the basics of

superior kitchen

design” by top

pros remain largely

unchanged. To

this day, he adds,

accomplished cooks

often know the best

possible kitchen

layouts for a given

space.

THEN

TILE SHOWCASE

Stone was just becoming popular 20 years ago, says Fred Merullo of Tile Showcase.

Rustic tumbled stone in warm earth tones were the norm, with treatments layering

on the sizes and embellishments. The same held true for tile, offers Merullo. Designs

featured layers of color, often hand-painted tile and the moldings were done with a

heavy hand. Today, “the looks are cleaner, and more sophisticated, with a focus on

texture and natural looking products” (think porcelains that look like wood or stone).

Cooler tones—grays and whites—have become the coveted hues, and we’re also seeing

elegant combinations of glass and stone.

THEN

SPLASH

Two decades ago, Splash debuted this

beautiful translucent basin when Kohler’s

vessel sinks were first coming into the market.

It was “inspired by fine crystal,” says a Splash

spokesperson, and boasts a radiant color

and unique design that looks handcrafted.

Today, the Vitraform sink is making waves. This

stunner is the most luxurious glass product in

the marketplace, maintain the pros at Splash,

and sought out by those who want a sleek and

spa-like master bath. The elite series offers

clear and frosted finishes, as well as engraved

and gilded versions.

THEN

20th ANNIVERSARY

BACK BAY SHUTTER CO., INC.

Bill Morton, vice president of Back Bay Shutter Co.,

Inc. chuckles that window treatments haven’t changed

much in 20 years, or even 3,000, what with names like

Roman shades and Venetian blinds. By far the biggest

change in the last 20 years, he says, is the ability

to motorize them, including those on a skylight, a

notoriously challenging window to treat.

THEN

KOTZEN INTERIORS, LLP

Barbara Kotzen of Kotzen Interiors, LLP studies

these two bedroom scenes and says without

hesitation that her design philosophy hasn’t

changed. Twenty years ago, her mission was to

achieve interior designs of luxury and comfort

that appear effortless. Her approach considers

the room as a whole—its architecture, finishes,

fabrics and furniture.

ARCHITECTURAL

KITCHENS, INC.

Back in the 1990s and 2000s, says owner Bill

Prachnick, “everybody wanted fussier kitchens” that

were heavy on the embellishments—features like

the fluted pilasters, glazed finishes, handpainted

tiles and moldings shown here. Today, “homeowners

are looking for simplified, sophisticated—but not

contemporary—kitchen designs,” says Prachnick.

Natural elements, surfaces

of wood or stone, are THEN

reflected in the heart of the

home. Lighter countertops,

white marble particularly,

have picked up where

darker shades left off.

Backsplashes have gone

“more basic,” and people

have taken a shine to nickel

finishes for hardware.

New England Standards

Recognizing quintessential New England style homes that were featured in our first editions.

PATRICK AHEARN ARCHITECT

This beloved home in Wellesley, designed by Patrick

Ahearn Architect, is heavy on the romance and

universal in its appeal. Elevated on a verdant knoll,

with stone walls that terrace down to the streetscape,

this cottage-style house has a commanding but

approachable presence. With its 12 pitch chunky wood

shingled roofs, New England stone and deep set windows,

this home has a gentle rhythm and a seamless design. Its architecture

has seen five additions, but you’d never know it.

DUCKHAM ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS

Located on the tip of Chatham’s Morris Island, this new

construction by Duckham Architecture & Interiors has

all of the hallmarks of a classic Cape Cod home—

weathered shingle siding, a red cedar shingled roof and

a wraparound porch that looks out to Nantucket Sound.

Perched atop a bluff overlooking the dune, this beautiful

site posed a challenge many wouldn’t tackle, as it slopes

dramatically from left to right. They kept the roofline

low to buffer against coastal winds but gave it Gambrel

elements so it feels spacious inside.

KENNETH VONA CONSTRUCTION

This beautiful Colonial

crafted by Kenneth Vona

Construction is steeped in

a decidedly New England

sensibility, and is, quite

possibly, an architectural

representation of the

American dream. A vision

in stone, clapboard,

copper and slate, the home showcases a full palette of traditional

New England materials. Multiple fireplaces, bay and ox-eye

windows, dormers, porticos and porches carry this classic far from

the realm of the everyday.

BOSTON BILLIARD EMPORIUM

“Many of the antique pool tables we sell at Boston Billiard

Emporium were made right here in New England,” says

Owner Stephen Kelly, and “built by the hands of New England

craftsmen.” Years ago, these magnificent tables were regarded

as furniture and owned only by the affluent. The hand-hewn

pieces wore the style of the

furnishings of the day; the

Victorian Era featured rare

woods and ornate details,

while the pool tables of

the Arts and Crafts Period

had simpler lines and were

fashioned in quarter sawn

white oak.

22

bostondesignguide.com


ADOLFO PEREZ ARCHITECT

20th ANNIVERSARY

This home was one of Adolfo Perez’s first major “modern” projects, says the

principal. He inherited it from an architect who had completed the exterior of

rough fieldstone in a traditional New England design, but had a vision for the

interior that differed from the owner’s. Perez was greeted by a “bare shell,” where he

could juxtapose a more modern sensibility against the traditional one of the façade. To

do so, he “balanced the almost primitive character of the stone walls with a palette of more

refined but robust materials and finishes.” He also fashioned “rooms” by creating freestanding

furniture partitions within the space, allowing the materials to speak for themselves. This

sculptural way of designing still informs his work today.

SANFORD CUSTOM BUILDERS

As its name indicates, the Colonial has been the classic

American home from the time the settlers stepped foot in

this nation and began building communities. A fondness

for the style is almost innate, and “ingrained into the New

England psyche,” says Marc Kaplan of Sanford Custom

Builders. This particular Colonial in historic Concord is

successful for its stellar design and construction. The red brick

and white trim is a winning combination that people have been

viewing for years. You can find the same red brick used on this project

in Harvard Yard.

MGA | MARCUS GLEYSTEEN ARCHITECTS

The first official house of MGa | Marcus Gleysteen Architects,

this home was based on a similar style that Marcus Gleysteen

had designed for a family member in Weston. A passerby saw

the striking Shingle Style, pulled in the driveway and asked for

the name of the architect. A new incarnation was born. The

home shown here was informed by the classic Shingle Styles

on the shores of Maine and Gleysteen’s coastal travels, where

he noted that many captains’ homes had entrances with “a

Chinese aspect to them.” The latter inspired Gleysteen to

develop his “own modern interpretation of

classical details,” which find expression in

the decorative portico with white trim.

FALLON CUSTOM HOMES & RENOVATIONS

This expansive Shingle Style new construction by Fallon

Custom Homes looks like it belongs at the beach,

says Owner Peter Fallon, rather than its Brookline

locale. It has all of the hallmarks of the timeless

style—the shingles, sloped roofline, shutters,

chimney and stone terraces—and more than a

few inspired details. Exquisite window details

grace four full floors at the rear elevation, says

Fallon, and “really make the house.”

bostondesignguide.com 23


Timeless

trends

We asked the principals what makes these

designs from 20 years ago so enduring, and

what they’d do differently today, if anything.…

Jan Gleysteen Architects, Inc.

This gray and gracious clapboard home is ageless, offers Jan Gleysteen

because it incorporates elements of classicism, employing design

principles that stretch back to the Renaissance, never mind 20 years.

The studied use of symmetry gives the home lasting appeal (note the

two strong gable wings and the “sunrise” archway that echoes the front

door portico), as does its geometry and the hierarchy of the home’s

massing. Its “bas-relief design,” comprised of four plane walls, creates tension

and interest, and the composition as a whole is softened by boxwoods, and

wisteria that climbs along the pergola. Were Gleysteen to do it again today? He’d likely

panelize the window atop the portico to mirror those of the twin bay windows.

Gregory Lombardi Design

This landscape of a genteel New England

waterfront home is successful years

later because of the feeling it conjures,

says Gregory Lombardi. The scene is

“an invitation to slow down” that’s about

engaging with the water, and, possibly,

memories. Even at the time of completion it

harkened back to an earlier time; it was quietly

inserted (from scratch!) in a way that preserved the

character of the vista. While oceanside environmental

regulations are complex, this design has a less-is-more

sensibility. The gate is elegant and simple to keep the focus

on the view, says Lombardi, while the boardwalk is a trigger

that delivers a “jolt of excitement,” compelling onlookers to

speed down its path and splash in the sea.

Anthony Catalfano Interiors, Inc.

A thorough understanding of proportion and scale give this

rich bedroom a lasting appeal that is as relevant today as it was

when it was created 20 years ago. It has an “eclectic but clean”

feel says Anthony Catalfano, that has staying power, thanks to

its neutral palette and decorative accents, including draperies

hung from stainless steel wire and a white leather upholstered

bed embellished with bronze nailheads. Plus, the room’s

fireside vantage and collection of contemporary art never go

out of style.

24

bostondesignguide.com


20th ANNIVERSARY

Nicholaeff Architecture

+ Design, Inc.

Most architects, maintains Doreve

Nicholaeff, strive for designs that are

timeless, and Nicholaeff feels she achieved that goal with this

complete renovation and addition to a Cape Cod ranch-style cottage.

It helps, of course, that the materials she utilized 20 years ago have

long been part of Cape Cod’s architectural landscape and show no

signs of stopping. Nicholaeff is most influenced by “the big picture,”

how the house sits on the land, and how it functions for the owner.

If those things are successful, the design endures. If she were to

design the house again today, she’d consider advances that fall outside

the realm of design. She’d raise the foundation to suit the changed

floodplain, update the HVAC system and insulation and enjoy

selecting the tile, appliances and fixtures from the wealth of options

on the market today.

LDa Architecture & Interiors

This red cedar shingle-clad retreat in Essex prevails because of its

rich architectural character and strong connection to the grand

summer homes that have dotted the North Shore coastline since

the 19th century, offers Treffle LaFleche. Its durable materials also

stand the test of time, and its contemporary composition and

open-living floor plan continue to be of-the-moment. While the

home’s double-hung windows are still prevalent today, LaFleche

might go with larger casements for a more European aesthetic,

tone down the historic reference a skosh and change up the crisp

white trim that shows the wear more than a darker stain would.

Detail Millwork, Inc.

This fireplace mantel, crafted by Owner Richard Rigoli of Detail Millwork, “was

meant to be simple yet elegant,” says Rigoli, “and I think it hits the mark.” The

striking architectural detail is the focus of an inviting living room and was

designed in African striped mahogany and trimmed with stainless steel. The

rich veneers of the handsome hearth have to be matched to get the look

and grain just right, and then vacuum pressed to resemble one solid piece

of wood. Good craftsmanship lasts forever, explains Rigoli, so he wouldn’t

change a thing. “If you were to look at this today, you’d think I did it last

week. But I did it 20 years ago.”

Catalano Architects

This stunning foyer designed by Catalano Architects pays homage to the

“‘Living Hall,’ which was “an integral element of the Shingle Style work

of firms like Peabody & Stearns and Arthur Little,” explains Principal Tom

Catalano. The entrance evokes the designs of the storied,

prolific firms of the Gilded Age, but updates the traditional

configuration of the switchback stair often seen in the

Shingle Styles of yore by virtue of its simple detailing

and palette of off-white stained wood. There is also

a subtle nod to an Oriental sensibility utilized by

premier Beaux Arts architect Stanford White. Says,

Catalano, “the railing is reminiscent of the way that

White’s interior architecture was influenced by

domestic Japanese interiors.”

Allin the

For many of the companies featured within Boston

Design Guide’s pages, a commitment to excellence

isn’t just good business, it’s personal.

Clarke

FAMILY

Tom Clarke launched Clarke Distribution Company, when he was chosen

by Sub-Zero as the first wholesale distributor in New England. What began

with a small showroom and just six employees has morphed into two

award-winning showrooms, a Culinary Service Center, an appliance service

company, and, along with Sub-Zero, many more elite brands. Tom and his son,

Sean, who was recently named president, have positioned Clarke to be an

indispensable resource for the trade and homeowners alike, as they can “Test

Drive” appliances in the showroom.

Gary and Scott Sweeney’s father William Sweeney,

always loved working with his hands. He was a

“Mr. Fix-It” type who repaired antiques out of his

garage. In 1977, he bought the barn where Yankee

Craftsman stands today. Gary and Scott Sweeney,

the youngest of the band of brothers who now

run the antiques restoration and lighting company,

inherited their dad’s love of tinkering and rewiring.

Yankee Craftsman has been involved with major

restorations at Harvard University, the State

House, and other historic properties and has lit up

the big screen for myriad movie sets.

Louis W. Mian, Inc.

For Louis W. Mian, Inc., it’s not only the artistry, it’s the

expertise that extends back four generations. The company’s

depth of knowledge first began when mosaic artisan Angelo

Mian of Italy arrived in Boston at age 26, and it has continued—

uninterrupted—ever since.

Over time, the firm has grown to include two more generations

and garnered an unprecedented 10 consecutive National

Awards for excellence in terrazzo and mosaic. After seeing the

demand for marble and granite, Louis W. Mian Jr. redirected the

focus to include all types of natural stone, but he didn’t shift the

business’s unwavering commitment to quality.

Roger Pelissier Photography

Roger Pelissier Photography, a portrait studio in the heart of

Wellesley, is a joint creative venture co-owned by Roger and Nancy

Pelissier. The husband-and-wife team have developed a winning

strategy: “I take the photos,” says Roger. “She’s the boss.”

Roger, whose artistry is widely represented throughout these

pages, “focuses on anything with people.” His studio is a family

affair on both sides of the lens. “We see a lot of families every year,

so we get to see those kids grow and mature and turn into adults,”

says Roger. “It’s at the point now where they are hiring us to

photograph their kids, so we’ve moved onto the next generation.”

20th ANNIVERSARY

F.H. Perry Builder

Allison Iantosca, owner of F.H. Perry Builder says at our

company, “We all feel like we kind of grew up under Dad.”

She’s speaking, of course, of Finley Perry who launched the

company in the mid 70s, with a carpentry and trade focus

before converting it to the “management model” that is

thriving today. Finley always “found great joy in the other

people in this industry, and I have shared that with him,” says

Iantosca. He was also humble, didn’t sweat the competition

and was staunchly dedicated to craft and building well.

Dad would be proud; Iantosca has not only continued his

legacy, she has put her own stamp on the distinguished

construction company.

Renjeau Galleries

When Renate Rosenfield opened Renjeau Galleries 40 years ago, she

says, “We knew art, but we didn’t know anything about retail.” One

evening, she and her husband “had the crazy idea of opening an art

gallery.” They had lived in the Boston area for all of three months when

they saw a “For Lease” sign on a Natick space. The rent was cheap,

and Rosenfield found herself with a gallery. Her impulse paid off. Her

son, Rob, who studied art history, joined her in the business 20 years

in. Together, they’ve added a wealth of custom framing options and a

second building on-site for exhibitions.

The MacDowell Company

Not too many people can say they launched their

business at age 16, but Roy MacDowell Jr. can. With

a pickup and an enviable work ethic, Roy did stone

masonry and enlisted his four brothers to help, among

them, Bruce MacDowell Jr.’s father. Fifty years later, the

second generation is taking the firm to new heights.

With Bruce overseeing all business operations. Bruce,

too, was immersed in the field at a young age, mixing

cement for the stonemasons, until Roy invited him into

the office to learn project and business management.

For both, their business is a passion, and the key to the

award-winning company’s success. “My father always

told me, whatever you’re going to be in life, make sure

you’re the best at it,” says Roy.

Jarvis Appliance

Jarvis Appliance has always been service minded. In fact,

before Antonio Jarvis founded his own company in 1957,

he worked as a repair technician for a major/sales and

service company. As his clientele and reputation grew, he

was able to rent his own shop and branch into sales, as

well. Today, his children Nancy and Tony run the business

he began in a state-of-the-art showroom in Wellesley and

offer over a dozen brands of appliances. They also, of

course, “service what they sell.”

Vision

ACCOMPLISHED

Forty years spent building and renovating homes for people brings a lot of satisfaction.

And, a lot of knowledge. It means we know the ins and outs of working inside just

about every Boston neighborhood as well as those surrounding them.

Whether it’s successfully managing traffi c fl ow to allow for our construction deliveries down

one of those charmingly narrow, one-way streets in Cambridge, or handling the nuanced

differences in pulling permits from Beacon Hill to the waterfront, we thrive on making the

complex simple. Then there’s the decades worth of project time spent in Weston, Wellesley,

Newton, and Brookline restoring estates and residences that have stood the test of time, and

building others to join their ranks.

Headed by Allison Iantosca, the F.H. Perry Team helps homeowners move projects

from dreaming about to creating. In their hands, a specialized building process ensures

both schedule and budget while workmanship remains uncompromised. It’s exceptionally

rewarding and why those in the trade and homeowners alike count on F.H. Perry to

deliver on their vision.

Art

Makes the Difference

Just twenty minutes from Boston, on Route 9 in Natick, Renjeau Galleries maintains a

comprehensive collection of fi ne art by some of the region’s fi nest established and emerging artists.

The main gallery, a 100-year-old home with several showrooms, contains the majority of the

collection. A smaller annex building on the property provides an intimate space used for special

exhibitions, highlighting a particular artist, or private viewings.

Many customers enjoy scheduling appointments in the gallery to see the artwork they have

previewed on Renjeau’s expansive website. It’s an ideal solution for busy clients, and is often

combined with borrowing on approval or an in-home consultation, which enables clients to

visualize the art in the home or offi ce space.

Additionally, Renjeau offers an incredible selection of custom framing choices as well as expert

fi ne art restoration.

Elegance

Meets Excellence

Boston Billiard Emporium combines a passion for antiques with painstaking craftsmanship.

PROfi l e

The “Golden Age of Billiards” lasted from the 1860’s until the Great Depression.

During this period, a billiard table was not simply a game table, it was a piece of

furniture of the highest caliber. These tables were made by the fi nest artisans, using

rare woods from all over the world.

Since 1975, Boston Billiard Emporium has been New England’s leading conservator

of antique billiard tables. Owner Stephen Kelly combines his love of antiques with the

painstaking craftsmanship required to bring the exquisite billiard tables of a bygone

era back to their original grandeur.

Their tables have been featured in books, movies and magazines, as well as on

NECN’s “Dream Home” and PBS’ “This Old House”. Many of New England’s interior

designers as well as architects have planned their client’s billiard room around a

billiard table and accessories purchased from Boston Billiards.

New pool tables are also available at Boston Billiard Emporium. These tables can

be customized by selecting the species of wood, color of stain, cloth and pockets

so that the table works better in your space. You will also fi nd a great selection of

accessories, as well as a full-service repairs department for anything that may go

wrong with your table.

Land

A working gentleman’s farm in

Dover celebrates its agrarian roots.

bostondesignguide.com 147


“I love everything about this room.

It imbues a sense of calm.”

- Barbara Kotzen

148

bostondesignguide.com


Growing up back in Minnesota, home was

a cattle and dairy farm. A kinship with the

land and a hand-to-soil connection was bred

and valued, and tended as earnestly as the

fields and livestock. So, when work brought

a Midwestern family to Massachusetts, this

mind-set traveled with them, where it would

steer the narrative for their new home, here

in New England.

The family wanted farming in their lives, and in their

child’s life, and enlisted Catalano Architects to design an

agrarian-based homestead, or, what principal Tom Catalano

terms a “gentleman’s farm.” The land and structures would

be more than picturesque; there would be “a real farming

component,” says Catalano, where the client could raise beef

cattle and poultry.

They were drawn to a working farm in Dover that was

for sale and part of a land trust preserving the town’s rural

character. The fertile, rolling property would allow them to

provide some of their acreage to a local farmer who runs

a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share program

that supplies residents with fresh produce, and leave the

family of three ample room for pastures and fields of their

own, a vegetable garden, an agricultural barn for their cows

and chickens, a second, more upscale barn for dinner parties

and business meetings, a pool and pool house, and a gracious

new main residence.

The land drove the site plan for the estate’s many features,

explains principal project manager Troy Sober, who worked

closely with landscape architect Gregory Lombardi of

Gregory Lombardi Design. The house was carefully sited

to indulge the existing landscape and “take advantage of its

splendor,” says Sober. “We worked hard with the architect

to capture good sun views, long views of their lawn and the

open fields beyond.”

A spring-fed pond on the northeast side of the grounds,

stocked with trout for fly-fishing, also informed the program.

So much so that Catalano designed the main residence—a

majestic yet approachable manor mixing western red cedar

clapboard, red cedar shingle and natural New England

fieldstone—in the shape of a Y, so that both ends of the home

embrace the serene, scenic amenity.

The house was oriented for maximum southern exposure

to afford golden meadow views and interior spaces flooded

with natural light. The agricultural barn, too, was positioned

to face south, explains Jon Wardwell, president of J.W.

Construction, as the client desired an “energy-neutral” home,

scripted with a sustainability story. The rustic post-and-beam

structure was the first construct built, and equipped with

solar panels that “generate enough power to feed the house,”

and run the geothermal wells, says Wardwell.

This sensitivity to setting informed decisions great and

small. While erecting the conference barn—an outbuilding

bostondesignguide.com 149


The owners have a Midwestern value

that they bring to the table every day and an appreciation for

craft. Time and time again, they’ve thanked the workers for

what they were able to build for them.

With its luscious fabrics and furnishings, the

formal dining room is the most lavish space

in the house. The Rose Tarlow chinoiserie

piece under the mirror is “a work of art,”

enthuses Kotzen.

bostondesignguide.com 151


with masterful woodworking and a New England fieldstone

fireplace at its core—the client had a root cellar chiseled into

the earth beneath the stone steps of the hillside. Doing so

would provide the CSA farmer precious underground space

to store potatoes, squash and other produce during winter.

They also opted to transplant a prized, decades-old

magnolia tree that was beloved by the former owner and

rooted where the pool terrace would be. “We could have

just cut that tree down,” reveals principal Bob Marzilli of

landscape contractor R.P. Marzilli & Company. Instead, “we

balled and burlapped it and moved it with a crane to make it

a focal point on the property,” preserving the site’s heritage.

New uses were also found for ledge, recycled granite and

the white pines that needed to be cleared, maintains Marzilli.

The ledge now functions as masonry, appearing in fieldstone

walls reborn after falling into disrepair or as boulders defining

the pond, while the timber was harvested and finished at a

Western Massachusetts mill, and used for the walls in a study,

and flooring on the third level and in-law suite.

That select materials were sourced and salvaged is

impressive, but what is even more noteworthy is how well

they’re employed. The home’s overall sensibility may be “a

relaxed yet traditional design aesthetic,” says Catalano, but

there is nothing relaxed about the craft behind the interior

and exterior details, windows, masonry and woodwork.

David O’Brien of Ares Structures, who provided the custom

chandeliers, frames the piano as well as the view. Says Sober,

“We worked hard to capture these little vignettes of living in an

agrarian landscape even inside the house.”

“We developed the

story for the landscape

as if we were leaving an heirloom on the site.” —Troy Sober

where they awaited a place in the flower beds worthy of their provenance.

framing and exterior carpentry, expresses the view of everyone

on the team: “Everything about that house is beautiful. The

aesthetics, the scale and proportion are spot on.”

While a grand home, Catalano downplayed its size, breaking

it down into smaller subcomponents. In fact, he says, “from

any one view you can never really take in the entire house.”

Rusticity was saved for the barns; the main residence is

refined and balanced, full of settings that are catch-yourbreath

beautiful. The artistry of interior designer Barbara

Kotzen of Kotzen Interiors, LLP, is woven into the layers of

every room; she has conceived elegant, intimate living spaces

that invite you to sit and stay awhile. The tranquil living room

subtly shimmers in silver, white and soft blue, while the regal

dining room dazzles with its angled fireplace, commissioned

oil painting and Scalamandré fabric on its upholstered walls.

The home is a composite of a thousand design decisions—

the metals in the tile of a powder room, the onyx surround

of a fireplace, the woodwork in the “his and her” studies, the

Rose Tarlow chinoiserie piece in the dining room, and the

many works of art, most inspired by nature and commissioned

expressly for a space, selected by Kotzen and the owner with

consultant Julie Mussafer of Jules Place.

“Everyone needs a Barbara,” contends the owner, crediting

Kotzen with presenting choices that made her believe she

helped craft the surroundings. “She made me feel like I did

this,” she says, with an appreciative wave of her hand. Which

is just how Kotzen likes it. My interiors, offers Kotzen, are

“reflective of the client’s taste and how they want the house

to feel.” In this home, that feeling is one of livable luxury.

Every level of this home cultivates

an indoor-outdoor connection.

The breeze, the salt air and the setting’s natural elements become design essentials.

A

close-knit bAnd of fAmily And friends hAve

descended on the postcard-perfect peninsula on

Buzzards Bay for years, returning to the summer

playground for lazy, memory-filled days, where

time, for a few blissful months, unfolds at a gentler

pace. This exposed enclave, carved by famed landscape architect

Frederick Law on a promontory facing due west, has to be among

the most spectacular on Cape Cod. It’s blessed by a natural backdrop

of sparkling waters and dramatic, fiery sunsets and now, courtesy of

Hutker Architects, an extraordinary, boldly-realized Shingle Style

home in which to enjoy it.

The goal of Mark Hutker, principal of Hutker Architects, is to

evolve the art of residential architecture even as it looks back.

“To understand it. To learn from it, and then move it forward to

accommodate our new lifestyles, technologies and our new ways of

life.” This is exactly what he did for a major renovation of a 100-yearold-plus

home, carriage house addition, pool house and boathouse.

A seaside sanctuary that is equal parts invention and beauty, and

etched with a respect for tradition and modern-day functionality.

Rebuilding on Olmsted’s terrain in a community “that values

its architectural heritage” is a responsibility. But Hutker Architects

found in C.H. Newton Builders, Inc. craftspeople with a “rich

history of generational construction” and a depth of understanding

for the construction details specific to the coastal locale.

The architectural program preserved as much of the existing

structure as possible, including its historic core, but called for a

new ground-level floor with an open plan for contemporary living

and entertaining. To achieve this, C.H. Newton Builders lifted the

top two flights from the existing home and rolled them aside, while

they poured the new foundation and built the first-floor deck. The

topmost sections were then set back in place by crane, where they

fit perfectly. Fortunately, says Chairman and CEO David Newton,

“After being in the business for 32 years, I love a good challenge.”

As C.H. Newton Builders crafts everything from historic

preservations to ultra modern high-end residences, his firm’s

versatility came shining through. “When Hutker and his team

designed the house, he saved so much from the original,” he explains,

praising Hutker for the dexterous way he blended old with new.

The concept developed organically. Says Hutker, “The upper two

floors had great character, featured by a gable roof, unique chevronshaped

dormers and beautiful shingle details unique to the craft of

the local builder.” His tone reveals it’s a privilege to safeguard such

details and weave them throughout the inviting new constructs.

As C.H. Newton Builders crafts everything from historic

preservations to ultra modern high-end residences, his firm’s

versatility came shining through. “When Hutker and his team

designed the house, he saved so much from the original,” he explains,

praising Hutker for the dexterous way he blended old with new.

The concept developed organically. Says Hutker, “The upper two

floors had great character, featured by a gable roof, unique chevronshaped

dormers and beautiful shingle details unique to the craft of

the local builder.” His tone reveals it’s a privilege to safeguard such

details and weave them throughout the inviting new constructs.

This convivial coastal kitchen

reflects a modern way of life.

The kitchen, with its hidden pantry, is “out of the

ordinary,” says Newton. “A walk back in time.”

And yet it also features state-of-the-art,

of-the-moment appliances.

ostondesignguide.com 161


“In a lot of the homes we build,”

says David Newton, “the next generation and

the generations to follow come back to revisit the

past as their ancestors saw it.”

Hutker created “smaller, more intimate moments in

the house and in the landscape,” he says. The master

bedroom turret (far right) is just such a space, as are

multiple roof decks that are separate from the primary

outdoor areas and perfect for quiet reading or sunbathing.

162

bostondesignguide.com


Panoramic views of the water with its steady parade of boats, the

beaches and those sensational sunsets are captured within the interior

living spaces. Porches surround the home’s perimeter on every level

and lift-and-slide doors “open, almost completely on the north and west

side of the home,” says Newton, extending the magnificent terrain.

Richard Hallberg of Richard Hallberg Interior Design continued

the indoor-outdoor connection within the home’s luxurious, livable

setting. He fills the tranquil, polished spaces with natural fibers and

textures for an effect that’s like the perfect beach day—sunny and crisp

and restorative.

State-of-the-art designs and amenities are featured throughout the

surroundings. The owners chose the “most current and modern features

and design in today’s appliances,” offers Service Manager Ken Crane of

Crane Appliance. Creative Systems configured “rock solid, easy-to-use”

audio and video, lighting and climate control, and motorized shades

for all three buildings, says Director of Systems Development Ronnie

Zielinski, wrapping audio throughout the exposed deck, installing

custom speakers in the stone pool house floor and incorporating a TV

lift on a swivel in the kitchen that can be viewed from any angle.

Even the landscape, conceived by Reed Hilderbrand and executed

by R.P. Marzilli & Company, has a sleek aesthetic. “It’s more modern

than what Olmsted would have done,” says Principal Bob Marzilli,

and boasts a linear, contemporary style. While gorgeous, the exposed

grounds didn’t come easily. R.P. Marzilli had to establish plantings at

the shoreline and seed rather than sod the expansive grass—all under

a constant wind.

The end result, however, is a beautiful, lush lawn that stretches to

the sea. Grounds that are worthy of an extraordinary property that will

call to current and someday generations, and allow them to experience

Cape Cod in the summer just like those who came before them.

HIP to be

Square

Adolfo Perez, principal of Adolfo Perez Architect, was

commissioned to create a comfortable, family estate for

the client, something “traditional, with a twist.” Yet as the

design process evolved, so did the new owners’ resolve

to inhabit something a little more unique. “Traditional”

soon morphed into unabashedly modern, with Perez,

together with general contractor Thoughtforms,

delivering a beautifully linear home that prizes function

and form, and isn’t afraid to make a statement.

bostondesignguide.com 165


The striking, sculptural house has

a distinctively horizontal feeling,

rendered by a stone wrap along the

entire first floor answered by fourfoot,

flat roof overhangs. Its exterior is

composed in stucco and Vals quartzite, a beautiful

stone from Switzerland that mingles blue, gray

and green tones, and “more importantly,” says

Perez, “a broken cleft face.” This face of the

stone courses in varying heights and textures,

and gives the home a less formal feeling. It

also “anchors the stone to the land,” maintains

Mark Doughty, principal at Thoughtforms. The

rugged surface provides a stylistic counterpoint

to the smooth stucco and clean expanses of

floor-to-ceiling windows—design features in

and of themselves—that bring the outdoors in

and bathe the interior spaces in glorious light,

sending it deep into the home.

There is a truth to the home’s setting that is

achieved by an aesthetic driven by function. A

dramatic floating stair in the two-story entrance

hall serves as an emblem of this design

philosophy. Equal parts beauty and utility,

the concrete stair is, quite literally, the “heart

of the home,” says Perez. The residence is

organized around the visual centerpiece, which

is “designed and engineered like a bridge, and

anchored on two sides,” says Perez. The effect

is one of “apparent simplicity,” offers Doughty,

however, the mechanics involved—the weight,

the time needed for the concrete to reach its

full strength and the calculations needed for

precision, make this design feature spectacular.

The streams of sunlight that pervade the open,

airy interior settings keep the modern space from

coming off as cold or stark. A neutral color palette and

end grain wood block warm the concrete floors and

minimal wall treatments for an industrial sensibility that

still feels homey. A “less-is-more” feeling, as well as

one of innate glamour is pervasive. Living spaces are

set off by furniture arrangements and forms, metallics

dance with one another, eye-catching works of art and

lighting designs radiate in all directions, while supple

fabrics and downy, piled rugs soften the hard edges.

As one might guess, this modern manse is a smart

home. Creative Systems installed a Crestron system

that allows the homeowner to control the audiovisual,

lighting, air conditioning and heating, and set “scenes”

bridging all of these elements from a touch panel or

remote control. Principal Steve Collotta admits that,

while it was challenging to run wire through the largely

concrete property, Creative Systems addressed the

acoustics when refining the sound system, sending

music soaring throughout the home and into the

landscape.

Outside, the goal was to create a connection

between the structures, namely, the main house,

outdoor kitchen and living room and pool house,

without “a formal unifying element,” says Perez. It

was determined that the main home should grace the

northernmost boundary of the open, doglegged site

to harness the sun and allow views to the South. The

other constructs would be linked by landscaped paths

and surround a large, rear yard.

Landscape contractor Bob Marzilli, principal of

R.P. Marzilli & Company, praises landscape architect

Stephen Stimson’s design of a “plank-style pattern

that adds to the contemporary lines of the project

as whole.” The grounds’ bold geometry pits a lush

yard against stone—flat work and granite from Maine,

and the landscape walls and outdoor fireplace from

the Adirondacks. While initially Vals quartzite was

specified for the latter, Marzilli sourced a more costeffective

solution that would still bring the conformity

the project warranted. He was able to match the tones

found in the home’s veneer with stone quarried in the

Adirondacks, and have his team split it and fabricate it

for the cohesive, grounded effect of the estate.

One of the exterior’s most compelling features,

says Perez, is the entrance courtyard for the approach

to the home. It’s “created by two, one-story wings

that form an enclosed courtyard, landscaped with

bamboo and a small water feature that one crosses

over to reach the actual front door,” says Perez. As

it doesn’t face the street, there’s a sense of privacy

to it, as well as a sense of ceremony. A portal to the

confines within, it sets the stage for a sanctuary that

is almost elemental in form, crafted with beauty and

honesty, that places the focus squarely on family.

WALK INTO ANY GENERAL STORE OR KITSCHY GIFT SHOP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE’S

Lakes Region and you’ll see vintage, hand painted signs announcing: “Life is Better at the Lake.” After

spending time amid the pine-laden hills and silvery waters of Lake Winnipesaukee—a heaven-sent

terrain of misty blues and moss greens where vacationers flock to swim, boat, hike or simply get off

the grid for awhile—you’re bound to agree.

bostondesignguide.com 173


The Great Room is on axis with the dining

area and kitchen, utilizing columns over walls

to differentiate the spaces; Right: Situated

lakeside, the porch was crafted as an ideal

spot for afternoon naps and hanging out. It

mingles different wood species—cedar, fir and

even twig—for a playful effect.

174

bostondesignguide.com


A new homeowner, who spent many lazy summer days at his

parents’ lake home as a child, is a believer. While his career carried

this young man and his family west, come July he feels the pull of

the East Coast and an instinct to gather lakeside with friends and

family. This inclination, along with happy memories, compelled him

to build a restful retreat and roots of his own.

He reassembled the team that built his father’s lake house—

Battle Associates Architects, Wood & Clay and Mollie Johnson

Interiors—along with Millwork Masters and Ponders Hollow, to

craft a getaway on a private slip of land with two-mile views of

the glacier-carved lake. Owner/Principal John Battle told his new

client from the start that he wouldn’t design him a home just like

Dad’s. (The premier architect makes a point of “not doing anything

twice.”) No matter, mimicry was never the goal; the only vestiges

would be the spirit of the home and the client’s fondness for it.

Mission accomplished, confirms Kevin Beland, owner and

president of Wood & Clay, a family-run general contracting firm

known for its unique, high-end custom homes on Winnipesaukee

and Squam Lake. The retreat has a relaxed feel and features varied

“wood tones, nice, clean simple lines and a lot of glass, drinking in

the beautiful views.”

The organic construct is one with its environment and comprised

of cedar and skirl siding, Douglas fir and a deeper-than-forest green

painted trim that’s both standard yet special in this locale. Peter

Brnger, general manager of Millwork Masters, the company that

supplied the Marvin Windows and Doors, and the interior and

exterior door systems, hails how Battle Associates Architects works

the design into the landscape. Battle is a master, says Brnger; this

home “looks like it grew right out of the earth.”

It was determined early that the public spaces would have

the best views of the lake’s sun-dappled waters and that the

screened-in porch—where most days begin and end—would be

positioned “right on the sweet spot of the property,” says Battle. The

homeowners knew that the porch, with its rustic outdoor stone

was made for special occasions and reuniting.

bostondesignguide.com 175


176 bostondesignguide.com


fireplace, “would be one of the most important gathering spots,”

explains Battle. It’s the hinge that drives the home’s layout, and is,

essentially, a second living room outdoors.

The great room—a high-volume space that’s open to the dining

and kitchen areas—also takes a lead role. It’s Beland’s favorite

room in the house; he applauds the use of stone in that space, the

curved truss built on-site by Wood & Clay and the glorious feature

window. Straddled by a rustic dinner table that accommodates a

crowd when extended on one end and the porch on the other, it

creates a beautiful space to congregate and enjoy.

For the interior design, earth tones were selected for a natural

look, as “the home was sited so beautifully on the water,” reveals

Johnson. The limpid blue-greens of the lake and sand tones are

reflected inside, coloring welcoming “mix-and-match” furniture.

Johnson “worked from the ground up” to achieve the overall eclectic

vision, finding fabulously unique, casual rugs to protect Ponders

Hollow’s wide-plank sugar maple hardwood floors throughout the

home. “This is their getaway house. They didn’t want it formal, but

they wanted it to be nicely done,” says Johnson.

“Wood & Clay is not shy about experimenting with a lot of

woods and getting a unique look,” says Ray Boelig, Director of

Sales at Ponders Hollow. “They think outside the playbook.” This

philosophy is shared by the entire team, all of whom enjoyed

working on a property that’s styled so differently from a primary

residence. After all, says Beland, “You’re on the lake. It should feel

like a vacation.”

The kitchen uses integrated cabinetry on its premium appliances

from Baron’s Major Brands, as well as fine-finished fixtures from

Kohler’s Artifact series from Splash. Johnson had the lights above

the island crafted from birch bark. Above: The stairs are board

and batten fir, custom made on-site.

CENTER MAINE

Anthony Catalfano’s Post House Commons brings a resort-style

retail destination to the seaside town of Wells, Maine.

ITS MOTTO IS “THE FRIENDLIEST TOWN IN

MAINE,” and thanks to Anthony Catalfano, Wells is

becoming even friendlier. The interior designer has

developed the Post House Commons—a tasteful,

vital marketplace, where residents and visitors

can gather to shop, laugh, enjoy and, when it’s fully

realized, dine.

At the core of coastal Maine, Wells’ location lends

itself to a centralized retail destination; it’s the “segue into

the Kennebunk,” says Catalfano. In fact, the Post House

Commons is positioned squarely on the road most traveled

into Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. “People from all over

come here, so it’s really a gathering point.”

The Southern Maine area is flourishing, and Wells is no

exception. Catalfano is thrilled he invested there two years

ago, when he built a Shingle Style marketplace steeped in a

sophisticated yet country aesthetic. Wells is artsier than its

posh neighbor Kennebunkport, and boasts plenty of room

to grow, not to mention parking. The high-end businesses

that have set up shop in Post House Commons are already

viable and thriving, and “it’s only going to get better,”

he says.

While he may have created a town common, its

businesses are anything but. As the anchor, Anthony

Catalfano Home has its own building, where it houses

a coveted collection of home furnishings and accents.

J Rose, Three Dories, Eyephoria Optical and Wright

Touch Skin Care are all under one roof. J Rose showcases

owner Julianne Rose’s impeccably edited, chic collection

of statement-making rope necklaces, beaded lariats and

other accessories by New York and European designers,

Laird Duncan offers full prescriptions and fills the custom

cases of Eyephoria Optical with height-of-fashion French

sunglasses and whisper-weight eyeglass frames. Wright

Touch Skin Care pampers its clients with customized skin

treatments, facials and more in a serene setting, and Three

Dories peddles breezy but elegant resort wear tailored to a

casual lifestyle (think color-splashed sundresses for women,

and polos and seersucker button-downs for men).

All of the shops complement one another and share

a warm, convivial air that breeds a happy shopping

experience, as well as the feeling of community Catalfano

was after. Now, if a great bistro and European-style bakery

would move in, his vision would be complete.

Designer Sacha Lakic harnesses

speed, movement and beauty

for his Roche Bobois designs

Text by Sandy Giardi

Photography ©Michel Gibert

Roche Bobois’ 2016 release: Lakic’s

Bubble Sofa, in the new textile Techno

4-D in a fresh shade of mauve

“Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated

by cars, by speed, by technology and

aerodynamics,” explains Sacha Lakic.

It was this passion that landed him in the world

of automotive design, where his bold show bikes

and futuristic designs have met wide acclaim.

Yet he isn’t bound to this field alone. His zeal

for speed and the poetry of motion informs his

designs for other realms too: fields like furniture

design, fashion and even architecture.

Twenty years ago, François Roche, co-founder

and CEO for the contemporary furniture company

Roche Bobois, was intrigued by Lakic’s car

designs, and suggested he give furniture design

a go. “I did,” said Lakic, “and my first design, the

Onda bed, produced in 1996, was awarded the

“Compasso d’Oro” Casaidea Prize in Rome.” This

success fueled an enduring partnership between

the premier furniture company and Lakic’s

studio that has lasted for 20 years and shows

no signs of stopping. Roche Bobois “trusts me

completely, and this is very important for me….

There is a strong and positive energy running

between us.”

Lakic’s pieces are imbued with motion and

emotion. “I feel that a product that is in motion

is alive. The idea of movement is always present

in my work.” Lakic finds fluidity and freedom in

his forms. He “loves to sculpt shapes.”

242 bostondesignguide.com


Photography ©Lionel Cironneau

He fuses aesthetics, comfort and function in furniture that

is at once cutting-edge yet undeniably classic. Pieces very

much in sync, he says, with the “‘unique savoir faire” of Roche

Bobois. “I like to design products that touch the soul and the

mind of people. The objects I design are to be cherished

long-term, because I endeavor to create products that stand

the test of time.”

brand BlackTrack Motors; top right: Lakic’s electric “car of the

future,” the Venturi America. Below: the interior of Sacha

Lakic Design’s architectural concept NEST

in my work. I provide objects with a soul.”

One-step design solution for a contemporary world

IL

DÉCOR began as a furniture store selling

contemporary Italian designs to consumers in

downtown Boston.

After decades of working with interior designers, Gary

Liberman and his professional team envision a new way of

shopping with the experience of in-store personal attention,

a one-step design solution for a contemporary world.

Today IL DÉCOR is not just another furniture store in a

prestige location. It is a center for interior designers,

architects and homeowners to explore all of their

decorating ideas in one place: stunning bathrooms,

efficiently welcoming closets, high-functioning kitchens

and, of course, a wide selection of the most stylish names

Antonello, Presotto, Cesar, and Alivar among more than sixty

to choose from, all represented by IL DÉCOR in Boston and

across the country.

our sales professionals and talk about new possibilities

for collaborating in the creation of beautiful homes. We

look forward to building strong artistic and commercial

connections with all of you.

a pool house or stay securely unseen underneath. This unique television, which is the fi rst of its kind in the United States, utilizes

the same technology found at sporting venues; therefore, it eliminates glare and displays crisp, clear, and bright images anytime

during the day or night. Creative Systems believes clients can have both superior function and design.


PROfi l e

Creative Systems provides the latest in integrated

systems and expert installation. Technology no

longer needs to overpower the home or your style.

Community

Young Ideas Painting and Design takes pride in creating,

working with and giving back to the community.

Y

This special 20th issue, Jeff Young and crew want to celebrate the completion of a barn for

the non-profi t, Gaining Ground in Concord, MA. With the community’s backing, Young Ideas

designed, drew and managed the entire project, as well as painted, tiled and laid the fl ooring.

A longtime board member at the local non-profi t, Jeff led the barn committee, overseeing every

detail to insure the barn’s successful completion. No longer a “farm without a barn,” Gaining

Ground fi nally has a home base for operations. Its 2500 annual volunteers and 60,000 lbs

of organic produce are sorted and distributed to over a dozen food banks and shelters in

the Boston area. Young Ideas takes pride in creating, working with and giving back to the

community. We thank our clients for their donations to the barn and for our 20 years with the

Boston Design Guide. We look forward to serving your design and painting needs, as well as

our community, for many years to come.
