Builder's Houses - Long Island, NY
The developer of a subdivision on the site of an old orchard on the north shore of Long Island, N.Y. Recognized the value of imaginative designs, yet ones that could be simply adapted to the physical features and vistas of each lot. In the end he obtained from the architect three 2-story model houses, each adaptedness to different views and landscape features, as well as tot he individual owner's preferences. Groups of windows were designed so they could be placed in any of several possible locations within each room. Family and living rooms are interchangeable; this way they can be made to conform to the demands of outdoor living, privacy and sun orientation of a given site. The fireplace can be located in either of these rooms, and there is a selection of exterior finishes.
