Description:

“This residence in New York’s Hamptons is oriented to the south and east with 9.5′
sliding glass walls to take advantage of the winter sun. In the summer, these walls slide open and some disappear into the exterior walls, allowing the house to become one large screened porch.

Above the living room sliding doors large 18×10 foot wall panels swing out on hydraulic lifts to shade the glass below. Exterior siding of Port Orford cedar wraps most of the walls on this first floor, inside and out.

Epay flooring covers the first floor as well as the terrace surrounding the pool. The fireplace in the family room features cast- in -place white concrete in fossil like negative relief, a memory of an antique house.

The second floor has a library-media room walled on two sides with bookcases. Timber girders and cross beams give the space a sheltered sanctuary feeling in contrast to the openness on the first floor.

This second floor wing also houses the master bedroom area, and all can be closed off from the first floor, allowing privacy. The study and master bedroom both face a second floor roof terrace, enclosed by a frame of mortise and tenon timber. Clad in cedar lath, this terrace provides a garden sanctuary looking west toward the bay. The house has both geothermal heat pumps and photo voltaic solar panels.”
