Cocoon
by NEA Studio

Caylon Hackwith

NEA Studio has created round walls to form a cocoon shape towards the northern and eastern neighbours of a Long Island home in New York.

The rounded enclosed half of the house provides shelter and privacy. The other glass side of the house, facing south and east, takes in sun, ocean breezes and open views.

The cedar-shingle cladding blends in with the architectural material palette of the historic neighbourhood.

By tuning in to given site conditions, and with the help of environmental technologies such as photovoltaic panels, the architectural design serves both the environment and wellbeing.


This project has been longlisted in the rural house project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
