An Ultra-Bright Escape on Shelter Island

An Ultra-Bright Escape on Shelter Island

We've seen lots of pink and purple Victorian homes, but it's rare that a modernist building goes this bright. Designed by New York firm Stamberg Aferiat Architecture, this neon paradise is aptly named "Maison Plastique."

Architects Paul Aferiat and Peter Stamberg designed the house for themselves, giving them the freedom to experiment with materials, forms, and — most noticably — color. The original inspiration was Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion, but the angularity and super-saturated hues of the building, the corrugated aluminum walls, and the rubber roof pull it into the 21st century.
