A year-round cedar-shingle beach house envisioned as a larger version of an early-1950s summer cottage pre-existing on the site. The new house is both broader and taller and is situated behind the crest of the dunes. The garage and storage areas take advantage of the sloping site. Modest “hurricane proof” windows strategically permit natural light and air into every living space and also open up to breathtaking views. The interior is designed so that the spaces flow easily into one another and allow for different degrees of privacy and social interaction, which was of primary importance to the client.
