Shingled beach home adds inventive loft on stilts
This unusual residence is an outstanding example of a successful renovation of an old oceanfront house by Rogers Marvel Architects. It was looking like an old barn, and in some way it still does – thanks to the shingled facade. It got rebuilt to include a number of new facilities such as the new swimming pool with jacuzzi, kitchen, terrace and the second floor bedroom. The result is this unusual structure consisting of multiple spaces that seem to ignore the laws of gravity. The house is protected from ocean winds and prying eyes on the beach by a sand dune, but its inhabitants can still hear the ocean.
