Designing a waterfront, Shingle-style home on Maryland’s Gibson Island, architect Christopher Frank of Hammond Wilson was able to make the most of the property’s location on pristine Redhouse Cove. Frank’s plan included an alcove off the family room with a bay window that affords views on all sides. This semi-circular space is used as a game room, so Frank installed built-in window seats that emphasize the watery vistas while offering extra room for guests. Coffered beams and a bead-board ceiling add further visual interest. Project Architect: Christopher Frank, AIA, LEED AP, Hammond Wilson, Annapolis, Maryland.
