Fire Island House

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s a feeling of expansive space that strikes you even though this Fire Island house is less than 150 square meters. Walls of glass blur the line between inside and out while allowing cross ventilation on a hot summer day. Double height living room and colour blocking provide drama in what essentially is a minimalist, neutral box. A summer getaway by Hirsch Corti Architecture.

Heather Giannandrea says:

Okay but 150 square meters is a REALLY BIG HOUSE. It bugs me how our conception of necessary space seems so skewed these days.

Lorraine says:

I agree with you Heather; my thoughts, too. 🙂

Sadly, here in the US, the newer homes are nearly double that. My dream home would be a modern style with the sq footage of the older homes

Bettina Spagnuolo says:

Personally, I love space, I think is the ultimate sign of luxury.
