The title refers to an article on a TMS Architects project that appears in Coastal Home Magazine’s Spring 2014 issue. The piece, written by Allison Knab with photographs by Rob Karosis, chronicles an extensive renovation undertaken by Exeter, New Hampshire homeowners. A talented team was organized for the renovation with the architectural design provided by TMS principal architect William Soupcoff, AIA and the project managed by TMS’s Tim Giguere, AIA, project architect. K & S Contracting handled the construction end of the renovation and Cebula Design provided interior design input.

The owners were fortunate to have a remarkable art collection -both parents of one of the homeowners were art professors and one  owner is the nephew of notable Maine sculptor, Clark Fitzgerald,  so a major goal of the renovation was to showcase the artwork and highlight their collection to its best advantage.  Windows were added to increase natural light and  arches added to separate spaces and allow for more light.

That formal front parlor was cleverly re-purposed as an elegant and efficient homework space for the couple’s two daughters; each space equipped with a custom-designed desk and built-in bookshelves.

The homeowner paid  TMS the ultimate compliment after the article appeared:

We just received  our copies of Coastal Home with the article in it about the house.  It was wonderfully done.  We owe you all many thanks for our beautiful house.  Every day, we wake up thankful to live in it.”
