N2 Architecture was selected from a group of its peers to design a family vacation home on Bay Avenue in Mantoloking. After a thorough review of the many constraints that a site like this presents, N2 Architecture prepared a design that both fulfilled the owner’s programmatic requirements as well as one that was sensitive to the context of its surroundings.
The timber pile foundation elevates the building high above the flood elevation providing protection from the next storm. The ground floor space created by the pile foundation, offers ample room for boat and vehicle storage. The first and second floors were designed to capture specific views and to encourage interaction with the outdoor environment, even when you are many feet above the ground.
