Project name: Gap Cove House
Project location: Rockport, MA
Firm name: Ruhl Studio Architects
Jury comments: The original bones of a house were stripped, raised, and built around, carrying on the original idea of the place but making it exceedingly more livable: less susceptible to rising tides; more accessible; and larger, with more space for its residents. We find this nice shoreside single-family home charming, a total transformation.
