The award winners are no strangers to New England Home. In fact, the Admiral House by Meyer & Meyer was featured in the November/December 2013 of New England Home. This stately home was renovated and expanded by Meyer & Meyer along with owner and interior designer Jennifer Palumbo. The project enlarged the house from 7,500 to almost 12,000 square feet and restored the existing home for modern living with a sensitive nod to the beauty of the existing architecture.
