The modern and welcoming design of this family-friendly summer home on the Jersey Shore embraces the client’s casual, beach lifestyle. Local restrictions and codes, and the client’s wishes for future adaptability of the building, also influenced the NewStudio team’s plans.

The family’s five young children inspired an open concept floor plan for large gatherings as well as private, more secluded areas for individual retreat. Carefully chosen window locations make it easy to glimpse the Atlantic Ocean from throughout the flowing open space.

The entire façade is wrapped in a mix of wood and cement board cladding, which is also expressed on the interior to blend the transition between outside and inside. The material palette features light, natural woods and evocative colors from the surrounding seashore combined with a vibrant palette inspired by the client’s Caribbean travels. It's beautiful, relaxing, and ready for family fun.
