Two New York artists, seeking a respite from city life, had lofty energy-saving goals for the renovation of a modest house, built in 1975, on a jagged bluff overlooking Long Island Sound. Shortly after purchasing the 2.5-acre property on the North Fork of Long Island in 2010, the couple tapped New York City–based Ryall Porter Sheridan Architects, a firm with three previous projects nearby, to update the rectangular volume and design a new stand-alone, net-zero, 1,200-square-foot painting studio.
