After a fire consumed their house on Fishers Island, New York, the owners asked Tom Phifer and Partners to design a glass house a long narrow glass and steel house that would take in views of both water and gardens.
The ceiling is only eleven feet high, the exact height of the pruned apple trees that border the front door on the south side of the house.
The new house is not only transparent to the gardens, water and sky. It is a glass pavilion devoted to art.
