With strict Architectural Guidelines on the main road into the famous beachfront enclave known as The Hamptons, the developer was unable to build with an exterior metal wall finish in order to remain within a historical beach cottage theme. With an owner's mandate to eliminate lumber products for healthy indoor air quality and fire safety, this project utilized a Facade System to conceal the insulated steel panels. This approach will maintain superior thermal insulation over traditional methods while covering up the metal finish to meet code requirements.The SylvanHaus is a mixed-use property featuring 1400 sf of prime retail space right on Montauk Highway and includes a 1200 sf two bedroom affordable apartment.
The building is designed for Hurricane Wind Loading while providing superior insulation in a cold weather environment.
