Architect’s Home on Shelter Island
William Pedersen designed his weekend house as an almost ‘sculptural form’ that blends into the land, and is putting it on the market for $9.995 million.
William Pedersen spent much of his distinguished architecture career designing sleek, towering skyscrapers that stand out among crowded urban landscapes. Several of the world’s tallest buildings came from the drawing boards of his prolific firm, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
But when it came to building his own home — a weekend retreat on the east side of Shelter Island, N.Y., on eastern Long Island — he took a far more subtle approach, creating a low-slung, angular design meant to integrate with its nautical surroundings.
