Construction is moving along for this house on Long Island's east end. Perched on a bluff overlooking the water, this will be a serene year-round retreat. The design incorporates regional materials and minimal massing in response to the fragile location while passive house strategies such as natural ventilation will create a low impact building.

This new seaside house on Martha’s Vineyard was conceived as a casual and comfortable modern cottage. The home is inspired by the spirit of Victorian beachside cottage vernacular with an overlay of Scandinavian modernism and responds to the sundrenched light and calming views of the beach and meadow. We are thrilled to share a few images here!


Perched on a bluff overlooking the water, this house on Long Island’s East End will be a serene year-round retreat. The living spaces are designed to open outwards toward cool breezes and lapping waves during summer, or orient inwards toward warm, soft cedar paneling and a cozy two-sided fireplace in winter. A green roof will provide visual reward and environmental benefit. See more here!
