This new beach house is delicately sited next to an ocean dune and overlooks the beautiful, sweeping coastline just beyond. This project is meant to capture the simplicity and compactness of rustic, north Atlantic fishermen's cottages. The shingle style cottage is shaped to provide maximum exposure towards the beach, so that each room enjoys a direct ocean view.
Emphasis was placed on realizing rustic, carpenter-style details that, in some cases, purposely appear "banged-together" or imperfect. A marvelous blend of old and new, the interiors are highlighted by the installation of exposed antique wood framing and paneling reclaimed from a demolished turn-of-the-century bungalow that formerly stood on the site.
