Located near the historic Thomas Point Lighthouse, this new house was inspired by nineteenth century waterman’s houses and vernacular boat sheds that dot the tidewater region. These humbly modest but elegant structures, with whitewashed board-and-batten walls, are quickly disappearing from the Chesapeake Bay’s landscape. Acknowledging these vernacular building traditions as the fundamental architectural “genetics” of the Chesapeake Bay region, this house ultimately can be viewed as an expression of contemporary tidewater dwelling, manifested through an attitude of evolutionary rather than revolutionary design objectives.
