Cape Cod houses designed by architectural firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva get a modern approach to a traditional aesthetic. The emphasis on light and open space is seen in their work on these homes and the Cape Cod Museum of Art.

These photos are from Architecture of the Cape Cod Summer: The Work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva, written by Michael J. Crosbie, published by The Images Publishing Group.

    Why is this blocking the pictures?

    Beautiful design, work and photographs. Nothing but the best from this talented group of people. We’re delighted to see Polhemus Savery DaSilva and associates get the recognition they deserve. D. Jeanloz – Chatham

    These houses are to big for the cape. The cape should restrict all homes to 1500 sq feet.

    Too big for the Cape? Restrict homes to 1500 sq ft?…that is a bizarre and ignorant comment.

    Polhemus Savery DaSilva and Associates do terrific work on a scale appropriate to the lot and surrounding neighborhood. Their work employs dozens of craftmen and elevates the values of everyone’s property in the communities they work. Keep up the great work!
