In the dunes

Posted on Thu, 10 Nov 2016 by midcenturyjo

It must be the scorching hot days that are plaguing my part of the world that has me obsessing over beach houses. Normally I’d be happy with a simple shack with a view and a breeze. That is until I see something just a bit more special.

On a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas – nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion.
