One of my first clients was a Franco-American gentleman who sought to build a European home overlooking the ocean on Boston’s North Shore. Symmetry, balance, harmony and proportion were our primary watchwords throughout the project. It was a great honor to encounter such a kindred spirit upon first hanging out my shingle.
I recently spent a much longer day than anticipated turning-out a classical elevation of the house in the style of the great Eighteenth Century engravings done by Colen Campbell in the Vitruvius Britannicus of 1715-1725. I thought you might enjoy seeing what’s possible with good old-fashioned pen & ink.
