Northwest Harbor in NY by Bates Masi Architects

 

Straddling freshwater wetlands and a tidal estuary just six feet above sea level, this house’s site demands extraordinary sensitivity to environmental concerns. Local zoning restricts the structure’s maximum coverage and proximity to wetlands areas, while Fema requirements set the first floor structure above the base flood elevation. - Bates Masi Architects
