Commonview

UP designed this private residence in the West End of Long Beach, New York, to be shared by two brothers and their small families. The site, which has ocean views to the south, allows for a design exploration of form, transparency, orientation, and spatial organization that responds to the natural context.

UP divided the required program into two designated areas: those with prime views vs. those without. The shared spaces and master bedrooms, which face the ocean, open to the views with floor-to-ceiling glass. The spaces with city views have smaller, punched windows, which creates a tension of contrast between the opposing corners of the structure.

Construction began in July 2017 and is set for completion in early 2018.
