Moonrise Cottage

 

Moonrise Cottage is a thought-provoking study in architectural form and space that creates a modern beachside home with intimate comfort.  Drawing playfully on the tropes of Shingle Style for both interior and exterior, partner Chuck Dietsche created high-energy spaces with modernist flow and whimsical millwork detail.
