Clad in classic yellow cedar, the exterior design blurs the lines between wall and roof, creating a seamless form. Subtle curved elements add a soft touch to the linear plan, encouraging a fluid visual experience.

A historic Newport Red was chosen for the front door, from which one enters into a refreshing modern plan that emphasizes calming neutrals and floor-to-ceiling glass that amplifies the views of the harbor.

Perched above Newport Harbor, the location offers stunning vistas of the waters where America's Cup races have unfolded for over half a century.

Situated in Newport's Historic District, the property embraced the classical red brick walls of the Gilded Age, which our new house was designed to preserve and honor.

Designed to preserve and honor.

A linear floor plan ensures that all rooms face the captivating view, while circulation areas are oriented toward the landward side.
