    Default Beach House Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean

    Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean: Breathtaking Beach House by Aamodt Plumb Architects

    An hour and a half away from Manhattan, there lies this spectacular dream home, called the Beach House. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the house is a place dedicated to relaxation, a sanctuary for the body, mind and soul. It relaxes, disconnects, protects and definitely inspires. Located on a narrow barrier island on the south shore of Long Island, the lovely home had to face on a regular basis the harsh coastal weather conditions. When Aamodt Plumb Architects took the project, they instantly identified the issue. The house needed additional protection. The team of architects came up with a solution: a house design that blends the idea of openness with protection. “The result was to create a tough exterior shell with an open, light-filled interior. Cast-in-place concrete was used to create a series of robust structural boxes, each defining a different living space and focusing attention on the landscape.”

    I like the beach and the hanging lights. Otherwise, ugly.

    I love this place! It's beautiful to me, simple, sleek, sophisticated and completely liveable. I would take it in a New York minute.

    I like it too but I would get sick of that lace/floral panelling outside. I love the exterior shot in the first picture.

    not my style at all - but it's got lovely views and I do like the wood.

    Since it looks like concrete construction, it *might* survive the inevitable Category 5 hurricane barreling through. It should have storm window protection. Even so, the salt water flooding will destroy all that nice wood. Call me a killjoy, but anything other than a cheap shack, right on the Atlantic Ocean, is a mistake.
