Summer House on Ice Glen Road in Stockbridge
The small 1970′s vintage vacation house, which had been a pre-fab package type of building, was transformed with an addition of a living room, garage, work studio, a new kitchen, and a screen porch. What was needed to make the transformation work was a new entry and a reorganization of the interior space to make the interior open and connected. The character of the house was tied to its context through the use of wood shingle siding, yet the modernist nature of the design is clear with the use of stucco elements, and a green, red, and yellow color scheme that the owner initiated. Subsequent owners kept the red and green in later renovations, but changed the original yellow stucco to an earthier gray/green color.
