Built with local architectural language, this beach house engaged modern living without leave rooted communal environment. Woods and stones building material impress environment unified. Almost minimalist design, wide aperture maximizes views of the ocean at eastern Long Island.
Large open rooms with wide expanses of glass are modern in their sensibility without being overtly contemporary. Two outdoor rooms provide the opportunity to enjoy the ocean breeze, and a double-height entry hall can be opened to the outdoors at both ends with massive sliding glass doors. Bedrooms for a family with four children, along with space for guests, fit comfortably in this house, which is both modern and traditional at the same time.
