    The expertise of Torrey Architecture spans from the design and construction of new commercial structures to the preservation and rehabilitation of historic buildings. We enjoy working with clients who share our interest in finding innovative design solutions for new construction, additions and adaptations of existing structures to modern technologies in energy conservation, communication and life safety. We are especially committed to universal accessibility and sustainable design when integrated seamlessly into buildings which bring people together for living, working and gathering. Torrey Architecture listens carefully to homeowners’ desires for change while studying the unique character of their existing properties before designing renovations and additions that complement their settings and express the lifestyles of their inhabitants. These selected projects illustrate innovative modifications and additions to existing homes to connect interiors to their surroundings, thus providing comfortable shelter in tune with the natural environment.

    Sea Captain’s House – South Shore, Massachusetts
    The architect was commissioned to update this rebuilt 1813 ship captain’s house with modern amenities and personal touches. The Federal style main house was restored and a new kitchen wing added, including a mudroom, kitchen, pantry, back hall stairway and bedroom suite. The living room became a spacious library, a connecting breezeway was converted into a three-season porch, and an attached barn was transformed into a study in keeping with the style of the original house. Restoration of architectural character was of paramount importance in the rehabilitation of this estate.
     

    Cape Cod Craftsman – Cape Cod, Massachusetts
    To take best advantage of its dramatic oceanfront views, this 1970s ranch was given a gable dormer window and raised ceiling in the living room, continuous water-side deck, a screened porch and a look-out tower study with a built-in window seat above the master bedroom. The kitchen and bathrooms were replaced and a sunspace, entry foyer and trellised porch were added to provide a welcoming garden entry.
     

     

    Gothic Revival Cottage – Eastern Massachusetts
    A thorough restoration of this picturesque mid-nineteenth century Gothic Revival cottage was undertaken with reference to archival photographs in restoring missing decorative features on the street façade. Facing a private rear garden the architect designed a kitchen addition with dining bay to complement the scale but not diminish the charm of the original landmark house.
     

    Colonial Farm – North Shore, Massachusetts
    This 1740’s farmhouse was fully restored, complete with restoration window sash, wide board flooring and hand-wrought door hardware. When an addition to this Georgian hipped roof original was required to accommodate a new kitchen, family room, bedroom suite, and three-car garage, the New England connected ell-and-barn tradition was invoked, appropriately re-telling the story of agrarian living in this pastoral country setting.
     

    Live-in Bay Window – Eastern Massachusetts
    The architect created an addition to a Shingle Style home that was inspired by the client’s fondness for Craftsman style furniture and architecture. This informal extension of the home’s kitchen/dining area introduced a sunken living room for relaxation and appreciation of the home’s peaceful rear garden. An indoor-outdoor solarium provided the transition to a dining deck and spa with stone pillars, cedar trellises and integrated lighting fixtures.
