During a multi-phased schedule of design and construction, this house, sandwiched between the ocean and the dunes of Bridgehampton, expanded its footprint from 2,000 to 8,000 square feet.
The client wanted a series of beach pavilions that blurred the line between indoor and outdoor living. The house was designed to be well used and to accommodate a large extended family with frequent guests. Spacious decks and patio areas were a principal feature of the design and were oriented to showcase the backyard as it meanders into the dunes.
We surrounded the large pool with a spacious patio, partially covered in a breezy aman. We took a “skinned” approach to the exterior, using cedar with mahogany accents and a lead-coated copper that gives the house a “glazed” look. Throughout design, construction, and extensive landscape design, the firm upheld an intense sensitivity to the natural features of the site, adhering to costal and environmental codes where applicable.
