Fire Island House by Andrew Franz Architect

FeaturedFire Island House by Andrew Franz Architect

Nestled on Fire Island, New York, the Fire Island House is a modern guest house designed by Andrew Franz Architect in 2020.

The house features an internal courtyard that connects the old and new parts of the building, and acts as an extension of the indoor-outdoor living space. The addition references the original building in geometry, cedar siding, and jalousie windows, but without mimicking the details. The ground-floor outdoor living areas are connected to the elevated decks by a new cantilevered stair seemingly floating away from the house. A simple palette of materials is used throughout to remain consistent with the original design.

Come and explore this beautiful house and experience the simplicity and elegance of modern design.
