Impressive modern beach cottage on Shelter Island, NY

Shelter Island House-Michael Haverland Architect-01-1 Kindesign

Shelter Island House is a waterfront property that has been designed by Michael Haverland Architect, located on almost four acres on the highest point on Shelter Island, New York. After careful analysis, the existing beach cottage was retained to be “green” and not wasteful.

The 3,400 square foot addition is modern yet contextual, composed of two simple volumes with traditional pitched roofs, mirroring the angles of the existing house roof. Large walls of glass and simple planes of stucco are juxtaposed in a modern composition. Steel casement windows and doors have mullions and panes that are the same proportion as the existing house, but significantly larger to capture the magnificent views.

The living room volume faces north, to the North Fork and Connecticut, and the master bedroom and guest suite volume shifts to the northwest to capture sunset views, providing separation and privacy from the rest of the house and outdoor spaces. A foyer connects the old and new with a flat roof and deck above. The existing house is reconfigured to include a larger kitchen, proper dining room, porch with breakfast seating and four bedrooms.

The eclectic interiors include significant pieces that are colorful and bright and comfortable but elegant at the same time. The outdoor dining table and chairs, pine banquette and lounge and other furniture was custom designed.
