Located on Long Island Sound in Greenwich, Connecticut, this shingle style residence was designed to capture Long Island Sound views from all principal living areas. A long narrow lot informed both the linear footprint and orientation to the water.
The building massing ascends from the street façade of the garage wing in three principal sections terminating at the water-facing main block. The dominate roof mass is punctuated by hip dormers flanking a classically inspired second floor covered porch. A second-floor open-air porch is also incorporated on the water-facing rear façade, both porches integral parts of the master bedroom suite.
A wraparound covered porch at the first floor exterior with a Tuscan columned perimeter creates a cohesive composition while also facilitating protected flow between interior and exterior spaces. A projecting circular porch pavilion lends scale and serves as both a land and water based focal point.
