An architect enlists his former Yale professor to help build Chilmark House, a family retreat awash in ocean views that references the area’s agrarian past.
Aaron Schiller approached his former Yale professor, architect Alan Organshi of Gray Organshi Architecture, for mentorship and collaboration on the design and construction of a multigenerational residence for his family in Chilmark, Martha’s Vineyard, where they’ve lived since the 1950s. The resulting Chilmark House respects the town’s long agrarian heritage, and provides plenty of social and private spaces across 6,200 square feet for three generations of Schillers.
Located on a former sheep-grazing meadow, the house overlooks Chilmark pond, spectacular views of the Atlantic to the south, and is fringed by a series of iconic, meandering Chilmark stone fences.
