Beach beach-style-patio


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.

Next we have a showera bit more open to the elements. This is one of those showers that makes me wonder about privacy, but what a spot for a rinse!

Gotta do an outdoor shower! Maybe in the tight corner between the hot tub and the front fence. We can keep it simple and tie in from exterior hose bib.

interesting...deck is removable? probably not as aesthetically pleasing...but if the shower was hidden in a non-visible area this would work well.
