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.
