Custom home builder Tate Isenstadt hired LDa to design the addition, renovation and interiors for his family’s 1820’s home in Hingham. The young family wanted to retain the character of the original Greek revival style while creating a house with ample natural light, an enlarged floor plan, architectural details in keeping with the quirks of an antique house.
Deceptively scaled, the renovated house boasts almost 7,000 square feet of living space, tucked into two gabled Greek revival cottages connected by a dormered gambrel section. LDa worked with the homeowner and the Hingham Historical Commission to meet all of their programmatic needs (adding a large barn garage with guest suite above) while ensuring the house would look as though it has always been a part of the neighborhood.
The interiors were designed to balance and contrast traditional New England styles with more modern touches, creating moments of originality and character - the high-gloss navy butler’s pantry sits in the background of a rustic antique farm table, traditional beams, columns and built ins are the backdrop to the colorful, textures and patterns in the furnishings and soft goods.
