Rentschler & Company Interiors
Edgartown Friends - Compact Compound
Architect, builder and interior designer collaborated with a thoughtful owner to accommodate a variety of family needs within a modestly-scaled Edgartown property. The house was lifted up to unobtrusively provide well-lighted space for children’s entertainment areas. Then, with each room a perfectly positioned piece of the overall jigsaw puzzle, the house itself opens onto a terrace and tucked-in gardens in keeping with neighborhood scale.
Spreading out the functional requirements of this family’s long, summer season vacation home to provide privacy and reduce visual mass, a fully independent mother-in-law/guest apartment sits above the garage. Interiors draw on honest, classical materials, and complement without competing throughout this elegantly simple compound.
