Max Rollitt

New England Mansion

Massachusetts, USA

A truly extraordinary remnant of America’s ‘Gilded Age’, this seaside mansion was built in 1912, extensively rebuilt in 1915 by Bigelow & Wadsworth Architects, and had fallen into disrepair by the time our clients bought it in 2015. The ambitious refurbishment was led by the New York-based Peter Pennoyer Architects, with whom Max and the team worked collaboratively to restore the historic interiors and myriad original features, including panelling, fire surrounds and light fittings. Architectural elements completed, Max and the team set about creating rooms that carefully balanced the theatricality of the house with an inviting sense of comfort.
