The house is
pretty close to

perfect the way
that it is.

THIS SMALL-HOUSE renovation by Priestley + Associates Architecture in
Rockport Village, Maine, infuses a traditional New England form with
a pared-down modern sensibility. Once a blacksmith shop, the now
predominantly white exterior and interior display a combination of dis-
tinctive details integrated with a succinct finish palette. “Keeping the
aesthetic very clean and very minimal has a calming effect,” says architect
John Priestley.

Groupings of tall windows and a glazed side door face south and the view. A succinct
palette of white painted shingles, minimal white trim and windows, a gray asphalt-
shingle roof, ipé decks, and metal cable rails helps unify the form of the small house.

The renovation maintained the gable form of the one-time blacksmith’s shop, updating it with knife-
edge eaves and augmenting it with a shed dormer and a second-story cross gable on the west end.
The one-story structure to the right encloses a lap pool, which is open to the sky.
