Located in United States, Salt Point House was designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners is a private home that surrounded by a great landscape in New York's Hudson Valley. According to the architects in the most basic terms, the 2,200-square-foot house is a wood-framed, stained cedar box punctured with skylights and lined in maple plywood with glazing on its short sides and a perforated corrugated-stainless-steel skin on its long sides. Meeting the sunlight Salt Point house seems to become weightless as a mirage dissolving into the surrounding forested landscape. The corrugated and perforated stainless steel that covers the long sides of the house reflects and filters the view of the landscape.

What can be better than to have a house on the seashore enjoying beautiful sunrises and sunsets and seeing the waves running to the shore? Thomas Phifer + Partners presented the project of the beach house in Long Island. It has very interesting architectural concept. The roof is curved and undulating as the waves in the sea. So this house perfectly matches the surrounding sceneries. The decor and exterior design is kept minimalistic in order to emphasize the home’s shapeliness. The space is rather subtle. Its free flowing nature embraces the landscape. As the architects say, it is a house with calligraphic flourish, writ lightly yet vibrantly in the sand.
