A SENSE OF PLACE: HOUSES ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD AND CAPE COD -- HUTKER ARCHITECTS. Monacelli Press, New York, 2015. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 224 pp. with 170 col. ills. 30 x 24 cm. LC 2015-930889 ISBN 9781580934275 In English.
Publisher's description: Thirteen exquisite houses create a portrait of life in one of America's most exclusive coastal destinations, along the beaches of Martha's Vineyard and Cape Cod. Hutker Architects, led by founding principal Mark A. Hutker, has designed more than three hundred houses along the New England shore. A member of the close community on Martha's Vineyard since his arrival in 1985, Hutker has become an expert at interpreting the ideal lifestyles of his clients within the respected traditions and restrictive codes of the beautiful but fragile environment. In their design and construction, these houses honor the vernacular traditions of craft and indigenous materials, are deeply respectful of the cherished landscape, and demonstrate a lively range of solutions to building on the bluffs and dunes that line the shores of the Vineyard and Cape Cod. A working organic farm fulfills a family's dream of simpler values; a luxurious renovation saves the best of an antique shingle cottage while transforming it for contemporary family life and a raised structure clad in naturally weathered boards combines the legacy of midcentury regional modern architecture with Cape Cod's maritime tradition.
