Gordon Residence

High Bar Harbor, Long Beach Island, NJ

New bay front home. Net Zero Energy.

The concept of the home is two solid masses with a void in the center.

The rear facade takes full advantage of the waterfront.

At night the home appears to float above the water.

A pair of exterior pocket doors open to connect the screened porch and the indoor spaces.

With homes just feet apart, careful placement of the windows makes you feel like you are alone on the water.

Lowering the living room provides a clear view of the bay from the dining table.

This second floor outdoor shower was once described as “life changing” by a guest who used it.
