The residence is sited on an Atlantic barrier island, at the edge of an oak forest, where the trees give way to the marshes of a tidal inlet. The main entry is a glass tower providing a shimmering, abstracted view of a prominent live oak. The separate buildings of living/dining areas, master bedroom, and guest cottage surround the garden and provide a range of living and entertaining spaces. The buildings are one room deep to catch daylight and prevailing breezes.
