Addition to a Historical Cape

Marshfield, Massachusetts
Client: Dr. Thomas and Katherine Thomas

This project is an addition to the original cape style colonial house located in Marshfield, distingished by the hand blown glass in the windows or doors, called Bulls Eye Glass. We like the look of these small windows to emulate this, we put small transum over the windows and doors.

Our goal is not to over power the existing main house. We angled the addition at 45 degrees, which also creates more private out door niche in the back of the house.

Sunroom Addition

Newton Center, Massachusetts
Client: Ken Holston & Susan Farrell

Architectural Designer: Charles DuMond

Momentum was asked to design and build this sunroom as an addition to the pre-existing Federal-style house, constructed in the mid-1800s. The clients were a professor of history at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, and his wife, an MD in toxicology. Design highlights include the bell-shaped knee walls beneath the ample window space, cherry moulding specifically fitted to the pre-existing interior pine woodwork, and a gas log for cold weather.
