Beach House Modern Addition and Renovation
Fire Island, NY
A contemporary addition to this Fire Island, New York beach cottage. We added a dramatic new lounging and dining area, while the interior of the existing cottage was entirely updated.
Oversized sliding glass doors connect the interior space to the outdoors, where a new deck courtyard, beautifully shaded by trees, allows for relaxation or entertaining. The deck courtyard is adorned with comfortable outdoor furniture, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere for guests to enjoy.
Pickled wood floors and walls, poured concrete hearth, glass tile walls, and hand-painted cabinets give the interiors a light, breezy, beachy atmosphere. Skylights between the warm wood ceilings bring in additional sunlight, contributing a warm feeling and serene ambiance to the open, airy floor plan. Complete with pops of color by way of accent lighting fixtures and bar stools, the renovated kitchen and dining area serve as a lively, unique space for hosting guests.
The fusion of cedar ceilings, cedar and metal clad exterior, and stone bathroom floors provide a contrast of materials, producing an overall feeling of refined elegance.
