Beginning with an in-depth overview of the history and context of Duxbury and the original property, Ahearn demonstrates a deep understanding of the area’s rich antiquity while guiding the reader on a journey through time. It is the preservation of history without sacrificing modern convenience that inspires and guides Ahearn’s narrative-driven design process for the reinterpretation of the property.
