Barrier Island House

This summer retreat complete with 270 degree views is sited on a peninsula jutting into marshland and inlets off of the Intracoastal Waterway outside of Wilmington, NC.  A modern aesthetic works to create a casual feel with playful circulation patterns and careful integration with the surrounding landscape.
