Comprised of two pavilions with solid walls on the southern and western side that mitigate excess solar gain [5] 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 [6] 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.
