Oyster Bay House

A house for a man with a boat. The client and his wife asked for a house for themselves and the occasional guest. Owners of a boat and a slip in the rear of the property, one of the primary requirements forces the house to be lifted in order for a boat on a trailer to pass underneath. The house is organized with a simple parti splitting the plan into a living space and a service bar. The kitchen and public living spaces occupy the first floor while the bedrooms reside in a volume hanging from the ceiling. The ground floor is planned to be rock and the extruded house is to be constructed from timber.
