Architect Horace Gifford's 1964 Kauth House from the book "Fire Island Modernist"

Featured images, of the interior of architect Horace Gifford's 1964 Kauth House, are reproduced from Fire Island Modernist, Christopher Rawlins' classic study of Gifford's deliberately seductive, experimental beach architecture of the Stonewall era. "Gifford carved his first conversation pit into the living area, sheltered by an encircling clerestory that directed dramatic shafts of eastern and western light into the space. A painterly arrangement of windows prioritized water views, while covered porches introduced a new degree of enclosure to the mix. A refined effort, the Kauth House was a revealing prelude to the creative ferment that 1965 would bring."
