If you are in the metro Boston area in the next month or so, try to catch a book talk for New Classic American Houses: The Work of Albert, Righter & Tittmann. For the rest of us, we’ll just have to settle for the book. In a time where Nantucket has been overtaken by gaudy McMansions that are trying to pretend that they are shingle style, and hot messes of massing on new houses that are trying to look classic, Albert, Righter & Tittman just gets it. I don’t really know how else to say it. They are respectful of tradition while pushing the envelope with postmodern moves. They understand scale, history, context, massing, and site planning.Here are a few teasers:

Van Dam Architecture and Design does absolutely beautiful and thoughtful work, with careful consideration of site, context, and materials in each project. You can check out more images here, and here are a few of my favorites:
