HOUSE ON THE DUNES

Plum Island, Massachusetts

This is a major addition and makeover to a dilapidated beach house with abandoned adjacent steel columns projecting up from the sand dunes. Environmental regulations restricted any part of the new construction from touching the sand for fear of impacting the endangered dune grasses so a system of cantilevers and a solar collecting solarium are primary drivers of the solution.
