Brigantine, NJ

Architect / Builder

Chaser Gaffney

Situated on a bustling causeway leading to Brigantine, NJ, the 44 Hundred House presents a robust, mostly solid front façade to shield against the street noise, strategically punctuated with windows to capture select views and draw in natural light. In contrast, the rear of the home faces south, opening up to serene waterfront views of St. George's Thoroughfare and the distant Atlantic City skyline.

This building's unique form reinterprets the traditional saltbox design with a modern twist. Its sharply angled metal roof slopes downward at the northern corner to deflect harsh winter winds. Meanwhile, the southern facade features large glass openings and deep covered decks, which welcome the low winter sun and provide shade from the high summer sun.

The ground floor accommodates garage and office spaces. The first floor is home to three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the second floor hosts the primary living areas with a large covered deck. Partially built into the roofline is an expansive roof deck designed for entertainment, complete with seating, a fire pit, and a rooftop garden. The elevated retreat offers 360-degree views of the surrounding bay and skyline.
