Furnishings are bland and simple, the perfect invitation to loll about and get absolutely nothing done.

In a light-saturated living space, a picture window encapsulates a beach vista that is as sweet as a primitive painting.

A sun deck is designed for warming the New York-chilled body, while providing the option of a “sunhat” of shade at head level.

In the kitchen, open to the sea air, a clanging collection of pots and pans hangs from a metal girder that forms the basic bones of the unassuming cottage.

An outdoor shower is essential, of course. And three little windows like a child’s drawing.

A sauna is housed next to the shower.

The steam for it comes courtesy of the sun. Electricity is supplied by solar panels boosted by geothermal heating and cooling.

Friendly to bare feet still sandy from the surrounding dunes, the cottage is lined with slate tiles and easy care timber flooring.
