Sixteen Years of Cape Cod Design and Construction

Architecture of the Cape Cod Summer,Shingled Houses in the Summer Sun and Living Where Land Meets Sea presents more than 20 years of design and construction that is at once fresh, yet rooted in Cape Cod tradition. In an architectural world increasingly polarized between strict revivalist classicism and avant-garde abstraction, the work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva displays a compelling third way. In the words of Robert A. M. Stern, Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, "The work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva beautifully melds the traditions of New England with the way we live today, affirming that an architecture of place trumps an architecture preoccupied with passing trends."
