This picturesque beach cottage was designed by Roger Marvel Architects and is located in Amagansett, New York. Whaler’s Lane Residence is a project consisting of a renovation and expansion of an existing building overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The new additions include a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and trellis, kitchen, second floor bedroom, and terrace. Here is a short description from the architects: “The original oceanfront beach cottage that occupied the site was reutilized conceptually for the project by maintaining similar materials and profiles to create a contextual residence.This property includes a large sand dune, that protects the project from strong winds, and public beach activity alike. The Landscaping has been accomplished with native materials and maintained with erosion control methods including Long wooden beach palates and boardwalks used to traverse the dune to the beach and guest house“. How do you guys find this unusual mix of traditional and modern? [Photography © Albert Vecerka ]
