Case Study: By Land and By Sea

Expanses of hurricane-rated glass on the Chesapeake Bay side of the home allow dramatic water views for public spaces. Deep overhangs provide relief from the sun.

Twin garages make way for a bridge that connects to the main house, which sits upon the outline of a former oyster-shucking factory.

The bridge crosses over terra firma, wetlands, and water, and is supported by 97 piles.

A steel-and-glass link ties together the home's two main portions, providing a vantage point for looking back at the mainland or out at the water.

The double-height living room opens to the outdoor areas, creating a perfect venue for entertaining large groups. A concrete floor is outlined in wood for a rustic yet contemporary look.

Living room stairs lead to the glass bridge that connects the main public areas with the more private spaces.

The kitchen's marble-topped island curves around a structural timber. The space contains a pass-through to a covered outdoor dining room.

The architects designed many of the home's built-ins, such as the bath vanities and tub surrounds.
