Island Overlook

This homeowner wished for a house that spoke to the local Shingle Style tradition, but also felt open and comfortable for entertaining. Hutker Architects conceived a gambrel structure with two wings (one for family bedrooms and one for guests) arranged around a large central living area. Cottage style windows connect with historic homes in the area, inviting light from all four directions, while contemporary interior touches create an atmosphere suited to the family’s incredible modern art collection and active lifestyle.
