The 21st Century has seen a revival of the modern beach house, including a sustainable version. The Genus Loci House, designed by Bates Masi Architects, sits more in the Long Island landscape of sand and dunes than anything built since Horace Gifford's houses in the 1960s and 1970s. On the approach to the house, it appears to be two low barns hugging the hill. However as one gets closer, the entire landscape unfolds, and the interconnection between the main buildings and the beautifully designed outdoor elements (pool, porches) becomes apparent. This is a house for those who love to be outdoors.
It's Character Approved because it's gorgeous, and it's as close to living on the sand as you can get without pitching a tent.
