The Crosby residence in Seabrook, SC, was featured in “Houses for all Regions,” a new book published this month by the American Institute of Architects Custom Residential Architects Network and IMAGES Publishing. The book is described as a “stunning selection of houses designed and adapted to accommodate the demands of location and climate — projects by renowned architectural firms from around the world.”
For this project, the clients desired a sustainable retreat that maximized their views. The open center passage is cooled naturally by sitting the house to take advantage of the breeze.
In 2012, Frederick + Frederick Architects won the AIA South Carolina Robert Mills Merit Award for the design of the home. The general contractor was Brunson Construction and John McManus was the photographer. The book is available at Historic Beaufort Foundation.
