A New York couple looking for a getaway wanted "to live in a landscape of grassy dunes, not of lawns and privet." They chose this plot of unspoiled beachfront to build a simple modern house by architects Taryn Christoff and Martin Finio. The brief was simple: to build a house that sits lightly on the landscape. Quoted in the December issue of Architectural Digest, Christoff says, "We wanted the site to feel like it was rolling under the house." Second, the couple wanted a house that would complement the contemporary art they collect. The building's form is of two long parallel volumes, connected by a glass bridge. Most living spaces are on the second floor to maximize the views. Want to see more? Turn to AD for the full story.
