Shelter Island House



This extensive renovation of an existing waterside home on Shelter Island, Long Island includes a new independent guesthouse, pool, and landscaping. Views out to the nearby bay from the main house were opened up through the use of oversized, custom windows and sliding doors. Flow between the new kitchen, living spaces and porches has been improved by eliminating walls that had unnecessarily divided up the interior spaces. The new guesthouse is clad in cedar and high-density cement board and has a fully planted green roof that helps mitigate rainwater runoff rates on this sensitive site.
