A year-round cedar-shingle beach house envisioned as an organic extension of an early-1950s summer cottage pre-existing on the site. The new house is both broader and taller than the original and extended at least 100′ behind the crest of the dunes as new zoning required. The main house, garage, and storage areas take advantage of the sloping site. 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.
