With this modern island house, New York-based architect Vibeke Lichten hoped to create a nature retreat for her family. The building contains an abundance of features that allude to a balanced relationship between the outdoors and the indoors. The plot is extensive and is located on Shelter Island which is a piece of land that is only accessible by ferry.
The residence boasts breathtaking vistas and "dramatic sunsets." Vibeke Lichten supplemented the aesthetic of the modern island house with a saltwater swimming pool, terraces, a micro vineyard, as well as a rooftop garden. The house is arranged in an L-shape plan and is entirely built from concrete. This detail allows for the home to establish a strong juxtaposition between itself and its surroundings.
