Sea Breeze: Bromley Caldari Architects on Fire Island

Working in collaboration with Jenkins Baer Associates, Scott Bromley and Jerry Caldari of Bromley Caldari Architects did a gut renovation and expansion of this Fire Island beach house. The brief was to create a clean, open, and spacious seasonal residence for privacy and entertaining with few boundaries between inside and out. We’d say they succeeded magnificently.
