Family Compound III

Long Island, N.Y.
By enlarging the pool complex into a fully functioning courtyard villa, this design comfortably accommodates two families with children. Separate wings allow for privacy while encouraging outdoor access and views. Architecturally, the “naive” character of this wood-sided building contrasts with the elegance of the largely stone and brick main residence nearby. A poolside fire urn makes walls glow and water sparkle.
