Beautifully renovated Long Island beach house

This beach bungalow is located in Long Island and it’s the Fisher’s family holiday house. It dates back to the 1960s and, inevitably, at one point it began to crumble and deteriorate. The owners knew they had to do something about it but waited until the last minute. Lucky for them, it wasn’t too late to renovate the house. They decided to preserve as much as they could from the original structure.

Even though the couple had bought this place only three years earlier, they knew it was old and it would soon need to be renovated. They just didn’t expect that moment to come so soon. Nevertheless, they wanted to do everything they could to preserve the house and its original charm.

It was perfect for them and their family. It had a family-friendly layout, a great location and a space-efficient design. At first they didn’t imagine a complex renovation. They just wanted the house to be stable again. They even felt a little intimidated by the idea of working with an architect because of their small budget but they managed to find someone suitable for them.

When the architect showed them the project they instantly knew it was perfect. It was exactly what they wanted. It had lots of light, plenty of bookshelves and storage spaces and a very lovely décor. The character of the house remained the same but with a modern twist. Every little detail was important for this renovation project. This allowed the architect to deliver, in the end, the perfect design for the owners. They can now enjoy their holiday home for many years to come.{found on dwell}.
