Shelter Island House

To accommodate a young family on Shelter Island, Workstead oversaw the renovation and expansion of a weekend cottage that was constructed in 1940 and reconfigured by legendary Long Island architect Harry Bates in the early 1990s. Our 620-square-foot pavilion, which contains the parents’ suite, pays respect to the milieu. The addition boasts the same modest scale, gabled form, and cedar-shingle cladding as the existing residence, while interiors throughout the residence employ or complement original wood ceilings, shiplap cabinets, and millwork. To distinguish the pavilion as a 21st-century intervention, we specified large windows and doors that lend it an abstract character and encourage the homeowners’ intimate relationship with the landscape.
