Shelter Island Retreat

14 July 2010 | 0 Comments

Oh wow, don’t you wish you were here?  I found this vacation home on Shelter Island, New York, on Dwell Magazine’s website.  View the slideshow here.

I love this building, and how the architect owner designed the entire thing around the location.  It doesn’t need air conditioning, due to the smart placement of windows to take advantage of ocean breezes.  Each bedroom was designed to be within earshot of the sound of the waves outside.  And just look at that shower (above).  Even it was designed for optimal natural light.

I’m having a HUGE case of vacation home envy right now.  Sigh.
