Architect Visit: Deborah Berke and Suzanne Shaker in Shelter Island

Julie Carlson September 21, 2009

One of our favorite summerhouses anywhere belongs to NY designer Suzanne Shaker, who worked with Deborah Berke & Partners on the project. At 1,200 square feet, the house is modest in scale, but the interior feels uncommonly spacious, thanks to the sweeping 20-foot-wide central living/dining/kitchen area, which incoporporates ample built-in storage. The exterior features materials that will eventually weather to a pleasing shade of gray: white cedar siding, galvanized metal roofing, and brushed aluminum windows.

N.B. Tomorrow we run a Steal This Look with Suzanne Shaker's style resources; to contact her, go to Suzanne Shaker.
