Mothersill Beach House

Common to most any beach area, you’ll see elevated wooden walkways hovering above the grounds, and those boardwalks help create a clear path when faced with a rocky landscape. This simple element is what inspired the design of this project, using it as an architectural component to intertwine portions of a historic site with a new building and the surrounding, natural landscape.
The site of Mothersill features two structures built in 1962, a small house and studio, designed by Andrew Geller, along with a diverse mix of plants, including rare specimens. Connecting the two structures is a boardwalk, common to his work. This part of the property is protected by a conservation easement, keeping the structures, Yew garden, and over 400,000 Siberian Iris’ safe, while allowing for a new main house to be built.
