Over four acres of waterfront land–atop the highest point on Shelter Island–sits this incredible beach house re-imagined by Michael Haverland Architect. The firm designed a modern but still contextual addition for the 6,000-square-foot home, with large steel casement windows and doors to best capture the surrounding views. While one end of the home looks like a traditional beach cottage, the other side is much bolder, brighter and all-around impressive.

The stunning Clearhouse offers a dramatic, modern addition to Shelter Island’s landscape. Envisioned by Stuart Parr Design, the dwelling elevates itself on a central plinth, taking in privileged views of the surrounding woodland and Peconic Bay. Much like Philip Johnson’s iconic Glass House, the Clearhouse boasts clean lines and glazed walls that blur the indoor/outdoor boundaries quite literally. Rising on stilts above the six-acre terrain, this ultra-contemporary home was also designed to cause minimal impact on the ground.

Keeping the plan of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion in mind, New York-based architects Stamberg Aferiat created an eye-catching, colorful home. Built using industrially produced materials and current sustainable principles, the home features seemingly disjointed planes that create the overall geometry of the structure. Located in the island with the same name, the Shelter Island Pavilion is an experiment in color, shape, and sustainability.
