Beautiful Ranch Dating From The 1950s Is Brought Into The 21st Century

by in Architecture

A ranch dating from the 1950's has been recently brought into the 21st century by Boishaus Architects and beautifully integrated into the landscape of Sands Point, New York.

The works that brought the fresh contemporary look to the house involved adding a glass pavilion to the original structure. This way, a new daily living space has been created, for cooking and other dining activities. 

The recently added glass pavilion ties into a series of terraces, gardens, a swimming pool and several outdoor 
living spaces, extending the house out into the landscape.

The gardens and the outdoor living spaces were designed in the same style as the glass pavilion and were conceived as extensions of the new indoor living spaces. 

"In addition to reusing the existing structure and as much of the landscape as we could, our sustainability strategy included: high-performance glazing and deep overhangs to minimize summer cooling. Plus solar gain, extra insulation, and radiant heat to minimize heating in the winter", the architects explained.
