Surrender

About This Project:

From Kersting Architecture:

“Time is the rarest commodity. So little do we set aside for simply being, to surrender to its passing.  It is with this notion we created a family beach home on Figure Eight Island, NC.

In order to reach this condition of stasis, balance must be achieved; just as the wind and sea coalesce to create a dune. We sought a similar equilibrium in all aspects of the design, between sanctuary and transparency, novelty and timelessness, organic and refined. Through this parity we hoped to make a place of meaning, to create a home called Surrender.

In her program, the owner asked for both gracious and airy spaces for family gatherings, as well as places of sanctuary, capturing the calming sensory experiences of nature.  In order to truly “surrender”, one must not be preoccupied with the business of living and entertaining.  Thus, principles of “mise en place” were employed- with an emphasis on an inviting and intuitive experience for multi-generational friends and family, while offering a low-maintenance, minimalistic lifestyle for the owner.”
