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 Schecter 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 is elevated an additional two feet to comply with current flood regulations.
