Shelter Island Summer House

Architect Cary Tamarkin designed his family’s summer house for snoozing. “It lends itself to massive relaxing,” he says of the 2,800-square-foot cottage on Shelter Island overlooking Long Island Sound.  “There’s lots of napping, and big dinners on the teak tables out on the porch.”

1Guest quarters with two bedrooms anchor the home at ground level. Above, a breezeway separates kitchen, dining and living areas from master suite and children’s bedrooms.

“Every bedroom gets to sleep to the sound of the waves,” he said. Tamarkin, principal of New York architecture firm Tamarkin Co., used 100-year-old cypress salvaged from the swamps and rivers of Georgia and Florida for its skin and structure. A former shipbuilder crafted its 36-foot-long beams.

The design challenge, Cary said, was to respond to the forces of the site – its sounds, breezes, views and lighting. “It’s all about outdoor living,” he explained.  “It’s small inside but it was meant to be that way.”
