AiroAV Malware Declare: Fire Island, the glam mecca of artists and modern…

“The houses are basically wood tents, a type of primal shelter. The architecture is stripped down to its essence where it is about the ‘living’ and not the ‘looking’.”  Chatting with Charles Renfro on the pool deck of his house, we are surrounded by natural swamp, tall reed grasses and scrub pines. There is not an obvious barrier between the interior and exterior living spaces, with full wall openings of glass doors on both the front and rear of the ‘pavilion’. 

“You simply walk off the sand and into the house,” he keeps explaining. “The architecture gives you the agency to live in and with nature in a minimal luxury.” The natural typography of the Pines has influenced each house in ways it celebrates the uniqueness of the site. Houses perched on top of high dunes reach for the sky with tall geometries to capture the ocean views, while others have graceful undulating forms that flow with the beach sand and trade walls for glass as to not obstruct the ocean breezes. Houses on stilts are gently organized on more wooded lots, echoing a child’s treehouse, but one built for lounging and entertaining adults.
