Robert Young Architects
Architects & 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.

Who makes the floor tile and what is this floor tile called? - The floor tile looks grey to me, not white. Could you tell me which it is and where you bought it as well as its name. Thank you.

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

Get a good quality door and apply a quality varnish inside and out , they use varnish on wooden boats to protect them it should provide all the protection you need. Bentley Design can build the door for you. You can reach them at 727-631-2882.

Love the ceasarstone on the vanity surface. - The ceasarstone almost looks green, but you've said it's nougat. Is that accurate? It looks so much darker than the sink.

Waterproof door? - Exterior doors keep rain from entering the house, and thresholds drain to outside. My question is how do you keep the door waterproof from both the outside and the inside? Thank you

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.
