A home is like a paradise, more over if we life with our family. It’s a safe place to stay and a place to take a rest after doing a tiring and boring day. Here I will review a nice modern home design which called the Fishers Island House. Based on the issues, this living space is completed designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners.
I really love the design, the wall is dominated by a glass wall so every site around the house can be viewed. It’s a nice idea I think. Meandering gardens and woods, sparked with daffodils, peonies and day-lilies, flank the straight drive in. An aperture is found up ahead near path’s end. It is framed by an arbor of apple trees, capturing an elemental view of the sky and the water: the horizon of the Long Island Sound. As I reach closer range, it’s like I suddenly realize that I have been looking not merely through foliage, but also right through the house.
Based on the image, I realize there is a delicate transparent pavilion; it’s just behind the cops. Aligns with the canopy of the trees before it, the canopy is light filtering trellis—a horizontal tracery of slender aluminum rods extending the roof plane.
Meanwhile, the entry axis penetrates the pavilion’s simple 4,600-square-foot volume, notching into its far side and emerging as a long, miraculously shallow reflecting pool, incising the lawn with a silvery film, its distant edge dissolving optically into the Sound.
My opinion, woven into the landscape, this house is architecture of subtlety, a precisely grounded yet quasi-weightless structure, and an ethereal rectangle, planted between two existing woods. What a nice and comfortable living space! It would be nice if we are stay here.
