Long Island

Just East of Queens, this home is nestled in the Village of Flower Hill in Manhasset.  Surrounded by numerous golf and country clubs, this location offers many outdoor activities at the footsteps of New York City, with Manhasset and Hempstead Bay on both ends.  Posh shopping complex Americana Manhasset is also just blocks away.  The large lot hosted an existing home that was demolished to make space for the new design and build.  Home orientation was taken into account as a new driveway, and pool in the backyard would be taken into account. 

Influenced by the "prairie" house style famously introduced by Frank Lloyd Wright, the rows of windows, open floor spaces, horizontal lines and flat roofs introduce a contemporary take on the prairie style. Another unique addition includes Passive House standards.  The additional geometric angles throughout the home discovered an infinite amount of thermal bridges that had to be resolved.  High energy efficiency design via Energy Recovery Ventilation was utilized throughout, with high Passive Solar standards and triple insulated air tight windows.  Those factors contributed to increased air quality and optimal Passive House design. 

The interior of the home consists of 6,500sf and includes 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths and one half baths.
