Architect: Frank Shirley Architects
GREEK REVIVAL VERNACULAR
Winner, Traditional Building Design Competition, 2007 - Barnstable, Cape Cod Chosen as one of the nation’s best eight architects, Frank won the 2007 Traditional Building Design Challenge held live in Boston. The challenge? To design and hand-draw a new “old” house for a specific lot in the Old King’s Highway District with thousands of visitors streaming by. Frank’s design is Yankee in restraint, but proud in its elegance. The design is inspired by the early 19th century Greek Revival vernacular of the historic district. The house presents a formal face to the public, but opens up to the backyard for the family to enjoy summertime on the Cape.
