Salt Marsh House
Architect: Francis Albis, Jr.
Architect Firm: Albis Architects LLC
Location: Guilford, CT
Project Type: Replace and Remodel
This fully remodeled home sits on a unique, private site overlooking a salt marsh with views to Long Island Sound. The homeowners requested that the new design open up those views and meld a modern aesthetic with vernacular design characteristics of a New England coastal town. The open spaces and materials employed were deliberately kept simple.Marvin windows played an integral role in opening up the views and defining the home’s exterior. Additionally, hurricane glass provided the necessary safety and durability for the adverse local weather conditions.
