Sugar Hill House in Fire Island, New York by David Gauld Architect PLLC

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Article source: David Gauld Architect PLLC

Perched on a hill at the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, this beach house’s cubic composition is shifted, resulting in spatial variety. Centrally located on the second floor, there is a cantilever that floats above the lap pool. The pool mimics the shape of the house with the cantilever echoed in the pool steps. This creates a relationship between the pool and house as solid and void. The cantilever/steps mark the central axis of the house.

House on Fire Island in New York by RESOLUTION: 4 ARCHITECTURE

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Article source: Joseph Tanney, Robert Luntz

Located on Fire Island, a barrier island off of Long Island, NY, this bayfront house is the summer retreat for a family who lives and works in Manhattan.

The house is designed as two distinct volumes, to provide the parents and their adult children with separate quarters for living and entertaining. The volumes are clad in cedar and connected by a glass bridge, sheltering a courtyard and pool, which receive western exposure for maximum daylight.
