Fishers Island is located at the entrance of the Long Island Sound and is actually closer to Connecticut than New York. The vacation beach home was designed by Resolution: 4 Architecture for a large family and features 6 bedrooms and 5 baths. At 4,469 sq ft, this is no small home, and it is as luxurious in its details as it is in its spaciousness. Built from 13 prefabricated modules by Simplex Homes, which were transported via ferry to the island, the home was assembled on top of a concrete foundation.

Some of the stand-out green features of the home include sustainable materials like bamboo floors, Caesarstone countertops, cement board panels, low E windows, and IPE decking. The entire roof is usable outdoor space with two covered outdoor living spaces and two open ones. One shady spot features a small planted grass roof and a cozy hammock and another deck is an open green roof. The very top roof includes a solar photovoltaic system and a solar hot water system. Energy efficient heating is provided by a 96% efficient boiler.
