Chilmark House – Pastoral Jewel with Modern Spirit


A pastoral jewel with contemporary spirit and talented architectural presence. This beautiful project with Scandinavian stylistic hints is situated in a former sheep grazing field in Massachusetts, the USA overlooking the Atlantic and it is designed in strong connection with its surrounding.

As a reverence to its location, agricultural heritage, and pure New England architectural forms the architects from Gray Organschi Architecture and Aaron Schiller had designed the modern home as a contemporary reincarnation of a pair of barns with intriguing low pitched roofs and natural dark wood cladding that blends beautifully with its surrounding.

The luminous interior decor composition is in tune with the characteristic architectural construct – modern, spacious and o, so inviting. The organic material palette (we especially love the warm blond oak cladding and the stone base), the trendy pieces of furniture and lighting, and not to miss the sophisticated color combinations sustained in neutral and still playfully range are corresponding wonderfully with the natural serenity of the landscape.

The beauty of the architectural and interior design of this modern home lays in its simplicity, organic connection with its surrounding and contemporary approach towards materials, textures, and shapes. The second floor (where the living premises are situated) offers magnificent views towards the distant ocean and the pastoral landscape. The architects cleverly had opened the premises throughout sliding floor-to-ceiling windows that invite the views and the natural light into the interior, securing luminosity and freshness for the decor composition. And a romantic spirit that takes your breath away. The light wooden cladding evokes cozy and welcoming feeling that has hints of Scandinavian simplicity and contemporary luminous expression. Many thoughtful details, smart design solutions and unexpected twists in the architectural shape and design elements make the exploration of this design project a truly enjoyable experience.
