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.

It appears to be a commercial door. I would like to also do something like this - However, I am concerned about the elements on the outdoor door - I live in a winter climate where temperatures can go as low as 10 below zero in the winter »
Another new shower trend (or one borrowed from a villa in St. John): Providing an outdoor shower right outside the bathroom. This is the same shower you saw in the previous photograph. There is also a shower on the indoor side of the glass, so the options are open in more ways than one.
I like just about everything in this setting. It is another image showing what i had originally imagined. However, it is unrealistic to have that much glass/window space. Also the vanity is way too large.
