Dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion of the Cap­tain Con­sider Fisher House, the size of the home was nearly dou­bled, yet ar­chi­tect Pa­trick Ahearn’s stylis­tic choices main­tained the al­lure of the orig­i­nal home. “I de­signed a his­tor­i­cally ac­cu­rate tran­som to re­place an anachro­nis­tic bar­rel-vaulted por­tico over the front door,” Ahearn writes. By re­mov­ing the over­ar­ch­ing por­tico and re­plac­ing it with a de­fined and sym­met­ri­cal struc­ture above the door, Ahearn linked the home to its rich past.
