The Surf Shack, New York

Roger Ferris, founder of the New York based architecture firm Roger Ferris + Partners, has built what he says is a "refined interpretation of the suburban American Dream: modest scale home, swimming pool, and travel trailer," brought to life in the Surf Shack house in Sagaponack, New York. Ferris put a modern spin on a charming cottage and a retro PanAmerica Airstream trailer with a white monolithic Corian clad swimming pool. The stark white pool gives a cool contrast to the throw-back trailer, which acts as a pool house for the owners of the home during the hot seasons.
