Shelter Island

An extension to a humble shingle residence in Shelter Island called for a response that was sympathetic to the existing architecture whilst being confidently contemporary for a young growing family. A composition of exposed wood ceilings, white shiplap painted cabinets, oak floors and wood frame french doors culminate in a pavillion style building that connects the interiors with the landscape beyond. The existing building is to be refreshed, materials reused where possible, and the addition will take small design cues from this; including the unique window shutters and millwork details.
