Architecture Design of Schechter House

Description About The Project

Schechter House designed by Seibert Architects, P.A. that adapts perfectly the owner’s demand for a 4,000 SF, four-bedroom house which would be open to the exterior, filled with natural light and would take full advantage of its waterfront location. Indeed, with eight feet of slope down to the water, the pool area and waterfront yard are terraced to provide flat open space for outdoor activities, for children at play and to ease the transition down to the water.

The design shapes the occupant’s experience of moving through the house with an abundance of natural light and views of vegetation playing an important role. Besides, ceiling height transitions are used to define spatial boundaries and to articulate circulation.

On the other hand, the main spaces of the house aligned along the waterfront to capture preferred views and open into the pool cage for bug-free indoor outdoor living. Besides, an interior courtyard surrounded by glass on three sides brings light, vegetation, and sky to the interior circulation where views of the water are not possible.

In addition to this, radiused wood ceilings of the Schechter House placed over the main spaces allowing natural light to spill into these spaces from above and to create an enhanced sense of openness and a lightness of spirit.

Indeed, the curved roof forms contrast with the more serious rectilinear nature of the design, bring a lighthearted quality to the house which is uplifting to its inhabitants.

The Schechter House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The Owners are a professional couple with two young children. They asked for a four-bedroom house that would take advantage of its waterfront location, would provide an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, and would be filled with natural light. The design of this Schechter House includes all interior elements other than furnishings. The site resides in an older waterfront neighborhood that is undergoing the replacement of the original houses. Original grade sloped down six feet from the street/original house level to the top of the seawall. The new house – Schechter House is elevated an additional two feet to comply with current flood regulations.
