Commercial Spaces with Character

General store ice cream counter

A GENERAL STORE: While this building is new construction, it was designed and built to feel like an old-time General Store. As one of the signature buildings of a seasonal cottage community, the furnishings, fixtures and merchandise all become a key part of the “staging” message for an old fashioned summer.

Design for lodge porch, MA

THE LODGE:
​The Lodge is the central gathering space for this seasonal, waterfront cottage community.The screened porch is home to weekly poker games, evenings cocktails and get-togethers with friends. The restaurant and bar are used by cottage owners and guests and the Library is the location for checking e mails, playing board games or just plain relaxing.

All of these spaces were designed to create a “comfortable’ setting, yet are able to handle high commercial use.
