This stunning two-storey residence on the shores of Long Island has been designed by Bohlin Cywinksy Jackson, who created an elegant combination of timber, steel and glass for this peaceful retreat with its extraordinary view and the “soundtrack” of the ocean waves. The fully bespoke façades from marine-grade stainless steel feature lift&slide windows with extremely thin profiles. They help defining the overall architecture in a constant mutation and permeability of natural light, thanks also to the specially designed skylights with their peculiar automated opening mechanisms. Both the façades and the skylights have undergone extreme tests in our in-house testing facility, where they have been proved for the most critical weather conditions as well as wind loads and performance over time. The transparency of the spaces floods the spacious interiors with daylight and create a constant dialogue with the nature that surrounds the building. A vast palette of natural materials has been chosen for the outdoor areas; materials which will reflect the passing of time in an ever-increasing harmony with the surroundings of the building.
