Strong Colors and an Overall Playful Vision: Polaris House in Massachusetts

Advertising

With its name deriving from the North Star (easy to spot though the skylight the kid’s bedroom), Polaris House was designed by Boston-based architect Bob Augustine and is located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. The exterior of the residence is adapted to the wood-defined architecture of the neighborhood. The entrance is easy to spot, due to the zinc-clad silo, contrasting the rest of the building finished in Western Red Cedar. The interiors were especially developed with a playful, childish vision in mind. Vivid colors and eye-catching lighting fixtures fill the house. As the client explained, the living space “is all about the kids.” A circular metal stair, painted in a striking industrial orange hue, acts as the focal point of the residence and guides inhabitants towards the second floor, where a library and a home office are located. Find this unusual color mix appealing?
