When @phoebecalliope and Nicolas de Croisset fell for a tiny hamlet on the North Fork of Long Island, some 15 years ago, they bought a 1920s fisherman’s cottage there, which they fixed up simply—just in time, as fate would have it, for Hurricane Sandy to all but destroy it. Rather than attempt to rehabilitate it, the couple opted to build anew, tapping AD100 architect @toshiko mori, a friend of Nicolas’s family, to devise a modernist house that would both survive coastal flooding and blend in with the local vernacular. “The community feels very attached to the property because it’s so close to the main beach,” notes Phoebe, director of special projects at @maisonetteworld Building on the original cottage’s footprint, Mori devised a two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot house, with a shingled exterior that nods to traditional East Coast summer homes and an asymmetrical hip roof. “The house looks different from each side, with different proportions, so it’s not static,” says Mori, who elevated the structure eight feet off the ground (well above the flood level ) to create a shaded outdoor room.
