Long Island, New York

On a small waterfront site, the design of a 3-story house provides views of 4 different water bodies, including the Atlantic Ocean.

The rectangular shape of the house has a triangle with large picture windows at the midpoint of each of its long sides, providing views in eight directions while countering anticipated high wind loads in the area. The sun, light and airflow from strategically located windows make this a “passive house”, reducing energy costs. Front and back decks at all levels make the house feel very spacious. The design is all about space and connection between indoor and outdoor.

This project is very important in energizing creative minds in the family.
