Contemporary

Cohen Residence

This contemporary beach house has soft colors on the exterior with bold white, gray, and black patternss and  textures  on the interior.   Clean and crisp design  describes this home.   A summer home for now, this house will become a year round sanctuary for the home owners, with plenty of space on the kid friendly third floor for visiting grandchildren.   A great second floor deck, partially shaded and partially sunny, provides the ocean views.

 

 

Stephano Residence

The transformation of this beach block, Longport house, from a 1950’s traditional rancher to a dramatic two story contemporary was nothing short of amazing. Featured in the Fall 2002 issue of Design NJ magazine, the house takes full advantage of its proximity to the beach. The house has tinted, glare and heat reduction glazing that allows the house to offer beach views from every room. Only 1600 square feet, the house boasts three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and two living rooms. While vertical wood siding, glass block, and sharp angles enhance the contemporary feel of the exterior, the interior went from a dingy gray paneling to a light, airy, sun-filled space.

“From my first glimpse of Terri’s plans, I knew I had made a great choice. From the beginning she knew what I wanted and needed in a home. Thanks to Terri, the process was pleasant and the result was spectacular.”

Cummings Residence

Everyone wants to know what the architect designs for herself and her family. This home, designed in 1992, is a soft contemporary with clean lines and spacious rooms. Located in Linwood, NJ, on a quiet cul-de-sac, it not only contains her home, but her office as well. The focus of the house is the large great room with its stone fireplace and pickled cedar ceiling. The rear has an extensive deck with built-in seating and planters and a covered porch for barbecuing. Renovated in 2007, the kitchen was completely remodeled and the (award winning) “Spa Room” was designed.
