Before & After

We offer an exceptionally personalized design process, which allows us to combine a full understanding of your vision and lifestyle with the highest quality design, materials and craftsmanship. It is our goal to make the process with our clients both exciting and rewarding, and to far exceed your expectations. Here are a few of the transformations we’ve had the pleasure of working on over the years:
Wequaquet Lake, Centerville
A remodeled family cottage on Wequaquet Lake is now one family’s dream home, read more from Cape Cod Home article by Haley Cote. See the full renovated cottage in our home renovations portfolio.
On a secluded Truro hilltop, this beloved family vacation home with an original large flat roof is transformed by curved roof panels and a signature lookout tower. Curved decks and steel cable railings extend living outdoors to capture spectacular distant water views of both Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
In order to link the existing house with an addition, the front door is placed on a 45-degree angle behind a Mahogany farmer’s porch. The roof of the garage slopes toward the road to give the home visual balance. Cedar shingles replaced blue clapboard siding. Cape Cod Life Magazine described the project as a “flawless remodel/addition”.
Cape Cod Bay, Wellfleet
A multi-level home on a fairly humble site uses every inch of its 23-foot height limit to maximum capacity. Cathedral ceilings and open-concept floor plan embrace today’s preferred style of living, but never at the expense of cozy nooks and comfortable spaces.

Little Pleasant Bay
A historical stone bungalow is renovated and restored with a guest room addition. Read about the renovation in Cape Cod and Islands Home magazine.
The need for a major renovation for this Cape Cod summer home was clear from the outset. After the home construction was complete, the project exceeded even the architect’s expectations. The character of this Cape house residential design inspires many of our new clients as they look forward to their own home renovations.
Fifteen years after designing a major renovation to this house, AD was asked to upgrade rear deck and exterior areas, in collaboration with landscape architect David Hawk. The new deck area featured a shade structure with removable canvas roof, which together with the landscape design served to mitigate the intensity of the sun, while enhancing stunning panoramic views.
Stunning Water Views
This major remodel offered stunning views, and although the footprint could not be changed, the height could be increased. The area of the added stories was maximized with the addition of substantial overhangs. A masterfully crafted spiral staircase, cozy loft space, and roof level master bathroom, all contribute to the functionality and beauty of the space.
