-Galveston, TX-

The developer of the The Preserve at Grand Beach reached out to have a spec home designed and built, by Seaside Construction, to help bolster the new community. Before a building permit was even secured, a client purchased the house based on RISE principal Cate Black’s design. The Preserve is part of the accreting beaches on the East End of Galveston. This area continues to grow rather than erode, making the land a desirable location. The exterior design pulls from traditional neighborhoods found in the East End of Galveston. Referencing Victorian architecture, the “witches hat” roof, use of corbel & dentil wood accents, and column details create a house that appropriately responds to The Preserve’s mission of creating a traditional development that acknowledges the rich history of Galveston

A Long & narrow lot lent itself to a modern take on a double stacked shotgun house. Circulation runs along the south side of the house, offering views to the water as you walk up the stairs and down the hall. The Communal spaces of the kitchen, dining, and living are designed as a long rectangle - loading one after the next in an open concept so that all have views to the beach. Upstairs the master suite comprises the entire back of house, allowing plenty of windows to take advantage of the idyllic location.
