CrowdFunding Extreme Makeovers

Crowdfunding News Wire
The Kickstarter-funded restoration of Cape Cod’s Weidlinger House has successfully pulled the modernist gem back from the brink. Last pictured in a pretty sorry state, with all of its glass windows and doors missing, its interior weathered by the elements, and a large chunk of its southwest corner taken out by a felled tree, the vacation home of renowned structural engineer Paul Weidlinger has been restored to its sleek and rational 1953 look, marking yet another triumph for the Cape Cod Modern House Trust.

When designing the house, Paul Weidlinger, the founder of prominent structural engineering and applied science firm Weidlinger Associates, Inc., borrowed many ideas from the homes that lauded architect Marcel Breuer designed in Wellfleet, Massachusetts: the cladding of striated Weldtex plywood, the division between public and private areas. As Architectural Record notes, the rectilinear three-bedroom cottage also sports a covered veranda connected to the ground by a Corbusian ramp.

Established in 2007, the CCMHT does its work by signing 10-year leases on neglected homes owned by the National Parks Service. The trust helps fund these efforts by renting out the restored homes, so hop to it, design-minded vacationers.
