Orient House V



The ‘floating’ of the living-floor of this Long Island vacation home allows for superior views over the Peconic River to the south-east from the screened porch, kitchen and living room while also protecting this wetland adjacent building from future flooding. The bedrooms and utility spaces behind connect the building down to the land, now gently re-graded up to meet the house. The energy-efficient design along with the use of solar panels will make this a ‘net-zero’ energy consumption building.
