Cliff-top cottage

Chesapeake Bay MD

Two-story living room (left photo) retains exposed rock chimney from pre-addition condition (shown in right photo), with scar of former roof line remaining to tell its own story.  Complex geometry of new ceiling is washed with light from two-tier bay window and from small widow added above the rock chimney.  Concrete chimney cap, forming the sill of that window, provides an ideal backlighted spot to display pieces from owner’s collection of colored glass sculpture.
