Bray’s Island SC Modern I by SBCH Architects

Bray’s Island SC Modern I is a private home located in Bray Island, Sheldon, South Carolina, USA. It was designed by SBCH Architects. The design for this stunning single family residence began and ended with its compelling site. “On a piece of dry ground between a pond and a freshwater marsh, the house’s site was ringed by a stand of unusually tall and thin live oak trees (which are typically more dense, thicker and lower to the ground). The functional program called for a generous living/gathering room, kitchen & dining, a screened porch, and attendant utility functions. Instead of a segregated bedroom, the owner desired a sleeping loft contiguous with the main living space. The loft opens out to a covered porch with views across the marsh.” The beautiful stone fireplace that climbs all the way up to the ceiling has a built-in niche to store firewood, nice and handy for those chilly nights from the cool ocean air.
