A forested, waterfront site in the South Fork of Long Island was planned to incorporate 25 residential units and a clubhouse for an existing marina. The site was particularly challenging abutting the Montauk Highway, the heavily used main vehicular artery into the area. The plan was developed after analysis of the site that included sound studies to determine levels of roadway noise, view corridors to the water, FEMA flood lines and wetland constraints, and a thorough mapping of existing trees. The objective of the plan was to minimize disturbance to the natural environment, minimize sound penetration into the site and maximizing views of the water.
The organization of the townhouse units along the edges of the site leaves a large, green open commons for the development. A recreation area was placed to the west of the units.
