Situated on a small peninsula, with a sweeping water view into the Long Island Sound, this contemporary family compound is comprised of an ensemble of traditional New England forms. The interior finishes are clean and deliberately void of the traditional trapping and moldings in order to accommodate the client’s vast collection of immerging contemporary artist’s work. The exterior is a pallet of soft grays, with individually hand painted shingles giving the appearance of a weathered and aged patina.
The spacious great room is made up of exposed steel beams, a ceiling of reclaimed barn siding and large spans of glass on opposite walls which provide a sense of structured openness. Within the great room is a modern kitchen and walk-through pantry, complete with clean, contemporary cabinetry concealing high end appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen, above the glass walled family room, a fly-bridge links the master bedroom with the children’s wing, connecting and unifying the space.
