Beach House on Long Island-West Chin Architects-01-1 Kindesign

This incredible modern beach house has been designed by West Chin Architects, located in Long Beach, New York. The home features a 26 foot wide, 3-ton airport glass hanger door in the living room that opens to the Atlantic Ocean. The residence is sited on a 60′ wide x 100′ deep corner lot on the Atlantic Ocean is an addition to the fabric of a community which is a city by the sea; an absolutely beautiful dichotomy of nature and man.

This is the first house in the United States to use the environmentally conscious structurally dynamic BBS wood structural panels from Austria. These panels allow a minimal floor slab thickness and large spans, and in the same breadth provides insulation value. The BBS acts as the interior and / or exterior finishes in many cases; this was a warm balance to the vast amount of glass on the facade and the exposed reinforced thermal concrete wall.

The use of a solar panel on the south facing roof will put energy back on the grid during the week, when the house is not in use. And during the weekends it will supplement the electrical needs of this 5,500 square foot house.
