New York-based Bromley Caldari Architects transformed a derelict Fire Island home into a gorgeous pyramidal structure that offers panoramic views of the bay. The original 1960s building, with a leaky roof and cracked pile foundation, was renovated to maximize daylight and create an open-plan living space that features an internal promenade going through the entire volume.
The house is located on a stunning site that boasts views of the bay. Its original structure is based on a three-story high A-frame, typical of the 1960’s. The building was crumbling – the roof was leaking and the spiral case was split in the middle – when Bromley Caldari Architects decided to give it new life and transform it into a great modern seaside home.
The architects kept the idea of a spiral case, but relocated it in order to provide unobstructed views of the surroundings and create a promenade that frames views from the living space, second floor bedroom and the crow’s nest third floor. Large bay windows and cat-walk balconies flood the interior spaces with natural light and fresh seaside smells.
