Design Associates Inc. Restores Nantucket Landmark

Owners Honored by the Nantucket Preservation Trust

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 9, 2011) - Design Associates Inc., a Cambridge and Nantucket architectural design firm, is pleased to announce that the restoration of a Siasconset home they recently completed has been recognized by the Nantucket Preservation Trust.

The Fremont-Smith family is the 2011 recipient of the John A. and Katherine S. Lodge Stewardship Award for honoring their foresight for caring about Nantucket's historic structures. The Nantucket Preservation Trust under their Preservation Award Program presents this award annually. Design Associates is proud to have been the architect for the Fremont-Smith family during the careful restoration and renovation of The Atlantic House in Siasconset, Massachusetts on the island of Nantucket.

Originally constructed as a summer hotel in 1848, the Atlantic House was moved to an adjacent property and underwent a transformation to become a single-family residence in 1924. The current owners acquired the property from family members and worked with Design Associates to refine the interior spaces while also respecting the integrity of the original architecture, seamlessly integrating changes into the simple yet elegant Greek Revival style of the home.
