Keefe Residence, Westport, MA

Designed for a tranquil wooded site on the Westport River, this shingled house exemplifies the power of simplicity and restraint in residential architecture. A tall, timber-framed living room forms the heart of the house; wings on either side accommodate the kitchen and three bedroom suites. A studio tower, circular in plan, with a conical roof and a detached garage with guest quarters above complete the three-building group. (Keefe Associates)
