17th Century Modern

The Spanish House from the last blog, with its Brutalist inspiration, inspires us for its spare, elegant lines, so too does the oldest house in Nantucket. The Jethro Coffin House shares the same spare elegance and economy of line, only (almost) 500 years earlier! Circa 1686, we truly believe that the palatte and beams, play of scale and lovely patinas are very bit as captivating and perhaps a bit more intimate.
