Hidden Path residence wins Copper in Architecture Award

Home on Shelter Island is one of two single family residences to be recognized in national awards program.

“The Hidden Path Residence in Shelter Island, N.Y. incorporates a mix of copper and western red cedar in its roofing and wall cladding systems. The flat-seam copper roof is made from a series of 18-by-24 inch copper sheet panels in a running bond pattern. All of the home’s built-in gutters, downspouts and roof-edge fascia trim elements are also made of copper.

The contrast between the home’s exterior materials is designed to express its volumetric organization. As it ages, the copper will develop a patina that will contrast the surrounding environment.”
