Perched on an ancient tree covered sand dune rising out of shallow Peconic Bay, the compound is a collection of three simple black barn structures that take their cue from agricultural buildings typical of the area.

Despite their stylistic connection to local history, the buildings are constructed with prefabricated panels which comprise the basic structure of the houses.

The two-volume interior of the main living area has vertical whitewashed pine panels on walls and ceiling adding dimension and making connection to the environment outside.
