The residence incorporates two architectural
features common to the island: the “Block
Island Dormer”, where the building facade is
extended into the roof with a gable, and the
shed porch. Expanding on the two, the front
porch became more than an applied form, it
became a connector between two blocks.
The Block Island House consists of a large
open living, dining, and kitchen space with
supporting den, four bedrooms, and the porch.
All of the rooms, except for the den, take
advantage of the light and southerly views.
Marvin Windows and Doors were used to
stand up to the rugged climate and provide the
large glass areas needed.
