On Water by Kersting Architecture

July 23, 2014

Kersting Architecture have designed On Water, a vacation guest house located in Wilmington,
North Carolina.







Project description

This vacation guest house sits on a 3.61 acre peninsula reaching into Futch Creek. Spectacular views offer western sunsets across the creek, sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean and a swimming pool just steps outside to the north. Three bedroom suites, a kitchen and a living area provide comfort for guests, with each room granted a water view. Column less porches formed by cantilevered bedrooms offer cool shaded areas and a rooftop terrace is perfect for sun worshipers. The material palette of painted brick, exposed structural steel, stained mahogany and white painted trim were selected to coordinate with the main house currently under construction.
