Perched on a bluff overlooking Block Island Sound, the property is a flag lot at the edge of a new subdivision, bordered on three sides by water, wetlands, and woods. The client asked us to design a house with a minimal impact on the pristine landscape, maximum exposure to the views and all the amenities of a year round vacation home.
The basic requirements of each space were considered integrally with the effects of sunlight, breezes and views. The house was conceived as a lens, continually framing and magnifying the subtle changes in the surrounding environment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Whether you have a modern home, a traditional Colonial or a rustic cabin in the woods, trees are always welcome. A few well- placed trees give a home a sense of place, a connection to the environment and welcome shade and wind protection. If you are building your own home, make sure you check out the existing trees before you dig, and tell your architect to protect the trees!More: See How Designers Build Around Trees
John Hill added this to Unique Chimneys, Outside and Inside
Here is another centrally-located chimney, but one that extends farther below the floor than above the roof. This fact occurs because the chimney serves an an outdoor space below the cantilevered upper floor as well as the living room upstairs.
