About Joe Wisniewski
Grew up in Montclair NJ, living in north of shore of MA for past 20 years. Attended University of New Hampshire for undergrad, and Dartmouth College for graduate school (Tuck). The building was designed and built by my father Chet Wisniewski in 1999. Chet was an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright from 1946-47 at Talisen West in Arizona. He was an Architect and founding partner at David, Brody and Wisniewski (now Davis, Brody & Bond) in New York. He was also a Professor of Architecture at The Cooper Union for twenty-five years. The Shop building was originally designed as working wood shop and space to refinish sail boats. The building underwent a complete renovation in 2018/2019, to re-design and re-create the space into an amazing home. The building provides all the features of comfortable home & summer retreat, but also maintains the character and dramatic architecture features of the original structure. The project was carried out by the studio Make Think Design. Make Think Design (MTD) is a multidisciplinary design and architecture studio led by Erin Pellegrino, merging making and thinking. Pellegrino is the founder and principal of the studio, with degrees in architecture from Harvard and Cornell, and currently teaches architecture and design at Cornell University and NJIT. The complete home renovation was complete in the fall of 2019.
Joe Wisniewski purchased this House in 1996
Why Joe Wisniewski chose Chilmark
The original Shop building design and roof line was inspired by the Shinto temples of Japan. Chet Wisniewski, my father, who apprenticed to Frank Llyod Wright in 1946-47, spent time in Japan as part of the Army Air Corps, during WWII, and this building's design was influenced by his time there. This property was re-imagined and taken forward by Make Think Design and is now a new modern home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and all the modern conveniences - perfect for family get away, summer vacations, or just a weekend away.
