Shelter Island Beach House

This stunning Shelter Island retreat, is owned by Andrew Cogan, the CEO of Knoll, a well-known modern-furnishings company.  As his wife, Lori Finkel, puts it, “Andrew’s whole life is about design.”  Finkel and Cogan enlisted friends interior designer Philip Galanes and architect Michael Haverland, a couple who are occasional collaborators, to help unify and transform the nearly 4 acres of property.  And transform they did.  In the end, the architectural plan allowed nearly all of the rooms to be oriented toward the water to better capture views and light.  Architectural genius, if you ask me (a sucker for great lighting.)
