Island House



These two schemes for the same island house offer distinct design options for a family retreat. This eastern seaboard site overlooks a salt-water pond with the Atlantic Ocean just beyond it. Both schemes meet the client’s requests for large interior living spaces, four bedrooms (three with en suite bathrooms), covered porches facing the view, and a wrap-around deck that fully encircles the house. The designs also comply with covenants on the property requiring cedar shingle sheathing on forms consistent with the island’s vernacular architecture.
