Gorgeous New England beach house in the dunes

Compound in the Dunes-Ike Kligerman Barkley-01-1 Kindesign

Compound in the Dunes is a stunning beach house located on a rolling site overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in New England, Boston. Designed by Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects, this beach house brings together two contrasting ideas โ€“ nineteenth century Shingle Style design, and a contemporary preference for material and textural expression over architectural detail. While the exterior captures the local design aesthetic, the interior treats light, space and surface in a distinctly modern fashion.

    I like this home a lot. Many similar homes seem far too “neutral” to me, becoming drab and a bit sterile in just how “calm” an atmosphere is created; but this home, although also very neutral, has important contrasts, bright whites and varied wood tones, that give the eye a break and some interest. It has a bit more personality. This is a home I would enjoy spending time in.
