Robert Young Architects
Architects & Building Designers

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.

Gorgeous home! Just wondering how high up the towel hooks are?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Step Into a Refreshing Outdoor Shower
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.
This Long Island, New York, house’s spacious interior shower is surrounded by shimmering tiles from Oceanside Glasstile (Tessera in cobalt blue) that pick up the hue of the Block Island Sound in the distance. A door (perfect for letting the breeze in) opens to the deck, where there’s a minimalist wall-mounted shower for rinsing off after a dip.
