Oceanside Avenue Residence 

Breezy Point, New York 

The Oceanside Avenue Residence project is a new single-family residential building located on the ocean side of Breezy Point in Queens, New York. The site is in a FEMA VE flood zone subject to hurricane force winds, flooding and high velocity wave action. Steel framing was introduced with wood framing infill in order to maximize glazing on the exterior walls facing the ocean while limiting drift. The first floor was constructed with a concrete slab on galvanized deck held above the flood line bearing. Below this, the concrete foundation walls were constructed on wood piles with flood vents inserted which then allow flood waters to pass through without disrupting the residence above.
