Geometric Shelter Island Pavilion Brings Modernist Bursts of Color to Long Island
Posted By Tafline Laylin On March 4, 2013 @ 2:05 pm In Architecture,Long Island | No Comments
Comprised of two pavilions with solid walls on the southern and western side that mitigate excess solar gain  in summer months, large overhangs that provide plenty of shading, and sliding doors and windows that ensure control over ventilation, the Shelter Island Pavilion is a comfortable year-round dwelling.
Cooler temperatures are managed with translucent double polycarbonate walls, which have a higher R-value than conventional glass and allow plenty of natural light to penetrate the interior. A geothermal pump  provides additional heating for the 1,100 square foot home without racking up a massive electricity bill. Bright, cheerful and thoughtful, the Shelter Island Pavilion is one of Stamberg Aferiat and Associates’ proudest designs.
