MEETING IN THE MIDDLE • A central kitchen unites two sisters and their
families in this shared summer house on Martha’s Vineyard
the shared kitchen has painted cabinetry, a pickled Douglas fir floor, and charcoal gray Italian stone countertops.
Like a captain in the wheelhouse of his vessel, architect Peter Breese looks through a bank of vaulted windows, taking in the view of the harbor. He is not aboard an elegant yacht, however, but in the light- filled, airy kitchen of the house he designed on Lagoon
Pond in Vineyard Haven, a section of Tisbury, Massachusetts, one
of six towns on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
