The Robinson House, 2000

228 Catalina Drive Tybee Island GA 31328 USA


Nestled for privacy among twisting oaks and fragrant pines, this family home on Tybee Island’s Back River was conceived as a platform from which to experience the changing qualities of coastal light and take advantage of view of the marsh and Atlantic Ocean beyond. The house is organized in a simple ‘T’ plan to create a formal entry court to the north and private poolside court to the south with access to its deep-water dock. The house’s steel and wood structure is elevated above the ground to create a shaded breezeway for family gatherings and sheathed in durable, low-maintenance materials including fiber-cement panels, natural cedar, and tern-coated stainless steel. On the interior, expansive views and generous daylight combine with Brazilian cherry floors and beech-wood cabinetry and paneling to create a warm, contemporary home suited perfectly for life on the water.
