East Harwich, Mass.-based Polhemus Savery DaSilva is one of the region’s best-known architecture and building firm, with its coastal homes dotting the shores of Cape Cod. The new book, Living Where Land Meets Sea: The Houses of Polhemus Savery DaSilva, celebrates 20 years of the company’s creating luxury coastal homes, not just on the ocean and bays, but rivers, lakes, and kettle ponds.
I was pretty familiar with PSDAB, though learned a lot more about it last spring when I worked on copy for Boston Magazine‘s Design Home 2016, which is perched high up at The Pinehills in Plymouth, Mass. overlooking Cape Cod. Living Where Land Meets Sea features many more classic casual coastal beauties, including floor plans and elevations.
Here is a sampling of Cape Cod summer house architecture by Polhemus Savery DaSilva from their gorgeous new book Living Where Land Meets Sea with images by local photographer Brian Vanden Brink.
