This is a sweet beach house on the Long Island coast by Roger Ferris + Partners.

The house and separate guesthouse form a simple rectangle shape, with a metal framing for exterior solar shading.

The perfect simplicity and relaxed design perfectly expresses the simple perfection of the vast sea to the horizon.

The ocean is fairly bracing in the region, but its always a balmy sunny spot for bathing in this sheltered space.

The design references the metal railings of a ship.

These railings act as solar shading on both sides of the long structure, softening the low rays of the morning and evening sun.

Delightfully: huge chunks of sky are framed by generous skylights.

The solar shading of the metal louvres reduces glare and heating and cooling needs.

The house is heated and cooled with geothermal energy, a ground heat exchange system to moderate the extreme coastal climate.

All of the interiors are delightful places full of joy.

In a sweet touch, the master bedroom bath gets its own spacious front row seating, overlooking the sea.

Behind it, a half wall separates the shower beyond, making a more secluded space.

On the other side of the half wall, the sink is hung.

The cleanest possible shower is simply a perfect glass box, from floor to ceiling.

Outside, reflective mirrored windows maintain privacy for the shower and bath, and create the illusion of a double walkway.
