SPG Architects envisioned and implemented Beach Walk House, a modern family residence located in Fire Island, New York, USA. According to the architects, building this home came with many challenges regarding local codes in height, lot line, setbacks, and site coverage, which the team successfully tackled : “Our response was to create a dynamic composition of three intersecting rectilinear forms, rotated on the site off the prevailing grid. This decision maximized both views and privacy“.

Despite the sober exterior, the residence exudes an overall welcoming indoor atmosphere: “The soft neutral colors and natural wood tones used in the architecture are enlivened by the bold use of color used throughout the house in furnishings, textiles and art prints. Indoor-outdoor furniture is used throughout the interiors and the exterior decks, unifying this vacation home’s living spaces with a bright and vibrant palette“. What is your personal stand on the design of this modern American home?
