The Orient House IV was christened as the second most energy-efficient structure on Long island and that speaks volumes about the eco-consciousness of this renovated 1970’s home. The classic home was renovated by Ryall Porter Sheridan Architects who not only instilled a sense of modern style and aesthetics but also added plenty of ‘cool’ features to turn the home into an eco-friendly hub. Yet, its uncomplicated design, spacious interiors and wonderful use of glass bring in a laidback contemporary look.
Features such as a compact building structure, thermal windows, double wall insulation, a great heat recovery system and ample ventilation allow the Orient House IV to use energy in a highly efficient fashion. The sloped site covered in lush green vegetation also ensures that the surroundings match the profile of the house. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows bring in lots of natural light, while giving an unabated view of Long Island Landscape.
Recycled aged timber covers the exterior of the home, while the interiors sport a rustic look with wood and stone being used prominently. Stylish yet minimal décor is used throughout to keep the space uncluttered, while muted tones give the home a soothing and relaxed atmosphere. Warm lighting and ergonomic shelf space complete this peaceful house. Simple, efficient and unassumingly elegant, the Orient House IV is a perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of the frantic New York lifestyle!
