Infusing a historic Boston estate with modern functionality
While many modern spaces lack the warmth and approachability of traditional New England design, contemporary need not feel cold. A historic, waterfront manor house in the Boston area was in need of remediation after years of withstanding the elements, but the restored product evokes history and craftsmanship while remaining modern and minimalist. Lian Eoyang, who established the San Francisco-based design firm VIF Studio, served as the lead designer and project manager for the restoration. Her design approach adhered to the Shaker philosophy of simplicity, utility, and absence of adornment.
