What is the modern cottage? Life today seems like a never ending race from place to place. Peace and simplicity are fleeting. Due to our modern pace of life, it has become increasingly important to cultivate your home to be your sanctuary. That is what the modern cottage does. Science tells us that our “always on” pace of life is unsustainable as it leads to stress and burnout.
The modern cottage strips away the clutter from everyday life by design. It is more than just style, it is a home capable of managing this modern world and all the intensity that it brings. Flexibility is key, especially when integrating technologies that will influence how we live and play. Space planning should address the reality that families evolve, grow, and change over time. The modern cottage is the anchor to our busy lives.
Through its unique connection with its environment, the modern cottage invigorates and relaxes the mind. Dynamic views call us to take walks on the beach, bike to a neighbors or work in the garden. This time allows our minds to slow and focus on the moment, a rare thing indeed. We spend time reconnecting with ourselves and loved ones.
The cottage promises a special experience of simplicity and connectedness, one that frees us from the clutter of the world around us. Through this simplicity, the modern cottage is uniquely able to capture a sense of nostalgia, a vestige of times past.
The “Modern Cottage” is more than just a physical dwelling, it is a lifestyle. It is a state of mind reinforced by the environment, both built and natural. It is a way of life that embraces the modern aspects of today’s world and the values of generations past. Through design, we are helping to improve lives. Each modern cottage is designed to achieve the dream of living near the coast. From comfortable, bustling hubs for friends and extended family, to Zen solitary retreats, whatever your coastal dream may be, we are inspired to design modern cottages for today and the future.
