In 1948 the Architect Nathaniel Saltonstall, one of the founders of Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, established The Colony Club of Wellfleet as a private club for art collectors. In 1952 he built several homes in the International Style for members on nearby Chequesett Neck. In 2008 the new owners of one of these, commissioned Hammer Architects to update and expand their house.

The new plan relocates the kitchen from the original maid’s wing, permitting family activities to be centered in the house. Utilizing the structural vocabulary of the original house, the new addition provides a new dining room, outdoor dining terrace, a master bedroom suite and indoor lap pool with an adjacent patio.
