The 81 residential units comprising the Crossings at WaterSound Beach are distributed across a spectacular coastal site in four individual buildings. Each grouping is linked by a series of small-scale bridges that create a strong sequence through the landscape. Each grouping has a distinct yet interrelated identity, characterized by entries that express an attention to scale of the individual.
Drawing inspiration from historic grand summer homes of the Northeast coast, the buildings of the Crossings evoke a simpler, more casual time. The soaring curved roof lines mimic the dune landscape and provide a recognizable and distinguished profile on the horizon. Other elements are borrowed from familiar historic examples reinterpreted in a contemporary manner.
