An escape from the everyday, this sensational residence in East Hampton, New York is a luxury retreat configured of three primary volumes arranged in a ‘C’ that frame the expansive, southern view of an adjacent, agricultural reserve. This view serves as a serene backdrop to an interwoven composition of interior and exterior spaces delivering on the promise of tranquillity.
Entry through a glass void in the northern side of the house is approached by, a raised stone walk, under an exaggerated uplifted canopy. The entry foyer, at the terminus of the outdoor pool, separates public space to the left and the private, two-story bedroom wing to the right. An open floor plan containing the living room, dining room and kitchen stretches along the length of the central outdoor patio. Large expanses of south facing glass help to dissolve interior/exterior relationships while a more selective glazing strategy locates individual windows in the predominately solid north, east and west walls that create privacy while modulating temperature.
The arrangement, assisted by a series of pushed and pulled planes, maximizes the ability to modulate the various sunlight requirements while creating more intimate indoor and outdoor functions that serve various functions as activities migrate throughout the day – swim, breakfast, sun, lounge, sleep.
