Silver Hill House Lincoln, MA

Modern Farmhouse

Precise standing seam gable roofs and board and batten siding nod to the vernacular farmhouses of Lincoln, MA where the house is located. A triangular wedge forms a canopy over the front door. Inside, the kitchen, dining and living room spaces are combined within a gable roofed pavilion. One of Flavin’s signature screens introduces an intimate scale over the kitchen island. The fireplace and chimney are placed off center in the space to allow floor to ceiling east facing windows in the kitchen. Borrowing a page from architect Marcel Breuer’s iconic Cape Cod long houses, a boldly modern screen porch supported on a steel tripod base cantilevers into the adjacent tree canopy. Connected to the house be a screened-in passage the porch features ventilation on all four sides. Ventilation is even provided between gaps in the screen porch floorboards.

We’re extremely happy to have chosen Flavin Architects for help in designing and building our new home. Between Colin, Howard, Heather and Bryan, we felt like we had an entire team behind us, ready to take on each phase of the project. They helped us come up with the right design for our property and have worked with us through all the changes that come with designing and building a new house.
