Located on the leeward side of Cape Cod and then sheltered again by Wellfleet Harbor the Indian Neck spit is the location of this Modernist inspired beach house. Nestled in pine forest and sand dunes looking out over the harbor to the open water beyond the house is designed to experience seasonal vitality of the location. A simple square of protected habitation, combining indoor and outdoor living space under a canopy of lattice Cedar; existing Pitch Pines grow up through the structure providing additional shade.
Raised up off the sand, the platform of the house becomes the stage on which a basic set of rooms are arranged, with the principle spaces (bedrooms and living room) focused across the broad veranda to Cape Cod Bay. A separate bunk-house with a partially enclosed outdoor shower protects the entrance from the rigors of wind and rain. On the sides of the house cedar boards angle towards the bay, providing privacy for the house within and shade from the rising and setting sun.
