Rocky Ledge

Rocky Ledge

Swampscott, MA

Our clients, an “urban transplant” couple, chose this site for its stunning views and rocky beach. The dated existing home and pool were removed, allowing for the erection of this stunning new build. The new home was designed to take full advantage of the ocean-side site, with numerous large windows framing the view and a vanishing edge pool. The home was designed to incorporate the sloping site, making the full three-story height only visible from the rear.

The client, a former fashion professional, inspired LDa to use New York and Paris apartments and men’s suiting fabric as the basis for the interiors palette. A sense of luxury was created through depth of color, refined materials, form, scale, and exceptional detail, both inside and out. The interior has a grand, expansive feel that is reinforced with masculine colors, tones, and patterns. The master suite was inspired by the client’s many trips to a favored hotel in Mexico and the open floor plan allows for panoramic views, modern family living, and an appreciation of informal yet sophisticated spaces from many spots in the house.
