Detail from the architects “Continuing up to the elevated living room, the ocean view, which at first is concealed by the mass of the concrete fireplace, slowly reveals itself. The shafts of light that stream through southern clearstory support this sense of tension and suspense. The interior sequence continues the unfolding play of hide and reveal, culminating in a treetop roof deck above the master bedroom. The spaces gradually open up to the land like a flower, and the ocean view is revealed by one’s sequential progression up and through the house. A sloping glass roof overlapping the north wall of the house renders ambiguous the distinction between interior and exterior space. Large sliding doors open the house up to the deck. The children’s bedrooms are located below the main living room floor and open directly onto the great northern landscape and ocean beyond. Ships prisms, like those that one finds on the old schooners on the Vineyard, are scattered amongst the floorboards of the deck and light the stone patio off the downstairs bedrooms.”
