YN-13 House and Soula House, Long Island, N.Y.

YN-13 House and Soula House, Long Island, N.Y.Two new residential properties located in Shelter Island at the east end of Long Island, N.Y. feature Follansbee's TCS Satin terne-coated stainless steel metal roofing. Designed by internationally acclaimed architects of Michael Morris and Yoshiko Sato, the soft gray finish of TCS Satin offers a unique look with long-lasting appeal for the contemporary residences.

The YN-13 House and Soula House are the very first ground-up residential building projects to come out of the husband-and-wife architecture and design firm, Morris Sato Studio. The two adjacent properties include approximately 14,000 square feet and six residential structures total, in addition to two swimming pools.

Completed in fall 2009, the 6,000-square-foot YN-13 House specified Follansbee's TCS Satin for roofing on the main house, guest house and two-car garage. The two-storied, six-bedroom main house features a pitched roof with a biased cut and protruding corners. The envelope treatment was inspired by the historic structures of Kyoto and Kanazawa, Japan, the bleached-cedar siding of the three structures merge with the TCS Satin to form a unified textured appearance between the walls and the roof. The main house, along with the singlestoried guest house and garage, form an enclosed courtyard space for the swimming pool and garden, and offer beautiful views of Gardiners Bay.

"We selected TCS Satin for its modern lines, beautiful, weathered aesthetics and sustainable features," explains Michael Morris. "The satin gray patina finish blends well with the natural scenery of the Hamptons."
