Design New England

March/April 2015 Cover!


We simply can’t contain our excitement about our March/April issue! It’s packed with beautiful and innovative homes, art and artists, rooftop retreats, and a fantastically flourishing garden that radiates on our cover. Photographed by Kindra Clineff, the shot shows a moment between homeowner Heather Falcone and her daughter, Lila, in the garden that encircles their 1885 Queen Anne Revival house in Brookline, Massachusetts. The urban location provided some challenges, but landscape designers at A Blade of Grass in Wayland, Massachusetts, cleverly arranged the garden into “rooms” that lend it elegance and spaciousness. Meanwhile in the Vermont countryside, a passive house achieves maximum energy efficiency and beauty with an ingenious design, and in Rhode Island, a one-time summer cottage is lifted from its foundation and turned precisely 75 degrees, giving its owners an improved water view. We also explore the work of midcentury Boston furniture designer Paul McCobb (with an online bonus video), traverse the old routes of the New England logging industry, and climb aboard a superyacht to marvel at its exquisite galley. Plus, the Boston Society of Architects shows off the winners of its Design Awards, which, this year, includes achievements in healthcare and housing, as well as gives recognition to small firms, unbuilt projects, design excellence, and the esteemed Harleston Parker Medal.
