Sullivan's Island House
Private Residence | Sullivan's Island, South Carolina
The team was challenged to transform a narrow lot into a unique, inviting home for an outdoor lifestyle. The orientation of the house successfully maximizes the site’s potential for cross ventilation and scenic vistas. The seamless flow between the house, pool, deck, and flora; guiding visitors towards a hidden entryway. In order to create a home that responds to the owner’s active outdoor lifestyle, the exterior porches—including the pool deck and patio areas beneath the house—are designed to function as outdoor “rooms.” Details on the house are intentionally simplified to maintain an emphasis on the home’s pristine island surroundings. Interior finishes were selected for their “unfinished” natural look requiring minimal maintenance in the beach environment.
