Connecticut is a rare place where the forest runs right into the sea. The Shore House is situated right in the middle to take advantage of both. A sunken stairway leads to the entryway of the home, also providing privacy for the glazed ground level. These glass panels flood the interior with natural light while also affording views of the neighboring bay. A charred cedar structure sits cantilevered on a concrete hearth, creating an elevated second story to house the bedrooms and providing a covered terrace below. Fitted with sliding doors, these intimate spaces open out to an elevated deck allowing for a prime space to gaze at the horizon beyond.
