Project Details

A contemporary home with a one-of-a-kind rooftop occupies a special spot nestled between the agricultural fields and saline ponds of Long Island. Its landscape, by Hollander Design, celebrates its distinctive location and ecosystem while being a haven of respite and easy outdoor living.

Oriented to take full advantage of views up the adjacent watercourse to a landmark bridge, the home and landscape are aligned to a spectacular view. On the second floor, the rooftop terrace frames views of meadow and field, water and sky. Here, the landscape runs up onto the rooftop, dissolving the difference between building and natural environment. From the bedroom windows, an up-close garden of meadow blooms beckons. A step outside is the ultimate experience for morning coffee: immersion in a flowering meadow garden made for the delight of butterflies and humans alike.
