Project Description

FROM THE AIA NEW YORK STATE:

This ecological home is characterized by the use of local materials and passive sustainable features.

The house itself is divided into three intersecting volumes; each has a unique relationship to the ground and surrounding landscape. A lap pool, embedded longitudinally into the hillside, connects the upper guest house to the lower main house. The Z-shape arrangement of the volumes strategically shields direct views from the street and the neighboring properties, while framing the desirable views to the east; the harbor, island, and ocean reveal themselves slowly as one descends the sloping site through the house
