A Modular Grid for a Seashore Retreat
This waterfront home from Roger Ferris + Partners is set on an unusually narrow site right on the shore of Fairfield, Connecticut.
The design responds to FEMA guidelines regulating first floor elevation and setbacks from the shoreline.
Clad in stained cypress, the house has an elegant modular grid design that controls and organizes the space.
This modular grid of windows surrounding the tower shape define the interior too.
Sun pours in to sink into the inviting rooms inside.
The interior finishes reflect a loft kind of aesthetic of simple and open clean design.
Light and bright, the grid continues unabated into the bedroom.
What a truly memorable and liveable sun-warmed seashore house!
Retractable shades vary the light further,without cluttering up the clean aesthetic with curtains, making it possible to enjoy a glorious and ever changing light-scape outside, unfiltered.
