New York design outfit Leroy Street Studio is responsible for some pretty fly architectural executions, known mostly for their modern, angular approach to domestic residences which both enhance and blend in with their natural surrounds. This building, known at The Shore House, sits on the banks of the Peconic River in North Haven, a village of Long Island, NY, and is the perfect blend of modern luxury with restrained nuance; made for the modern Gatsby who wants to show off without looking like a tool.
Sitting on a sloped plot, the designers made it so that you can walk down into the home via a staircase, with the flat roof sitting almost flush with the ground at the home’s entrance. Throughout the open spaces, the use of natural minerals and timber maintain the strong, masculine approach, giving the impression that this is more the home of an all-out modern playboy than it is a happy family.
The open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area wraps around the lower floor and drops into a sunken seating area, providing huge space for entertaining – yet another reason we think that this is a sweet spot for the dapper bloke who wants to party with a hundred baes ‘til the sun comes up over the bay, and then party some more.
