Gagne House

-A A +A
1989, James Estes. 21 Hamilton Ave.

A small house by an architect who has played a large role in recent years in reinvigorating the shingled building traditions of the islands. All roof slope and shaded porch, it is defined by simple massing rather than decorative shaping, with its restraint underscored by a modest cabinlike scale that makes it appear embedded within its wooded setting.
