Kleinman House - Napeague, New York
Situated on a sandy strip of land between a marsh and Napeague Bay, the house orients itself to the view of the bay. The plan features a series of shed-like "clip-ons," which house services such as a kitchen, laundry, fireplace, and stair towers. The seasonal aspect of the house did not mandate passive solar gain. Therefore, the south facade is mainly closed, with the exception of high windows which serve to cool the house syphonically . A cast-iron stove housed in a colorful niche is sufficient to heat the entire open area on the second floor.
