PURITAN RD, SWAMPSCOTT, TRANSITIONAL RENOVATION IN A TRADITIONAL WATERFRONT HOME

This oceanfront home was a tiny wreck of a building located in a flood zone on a small suburban beach. The home was gutted to the frame and doubled in size by by adding a mirrored copy of the original structure to the back of the building. The new structure was raised 3' above the ground and designed to allow flood waters to flow under the building without changing the original flood patterns. Even the garage door has breakaway panels!
