Blending a desire for comfort and thematic integrity, this Hampton’s beach house is inspired by a profound understanding and appreciation for its unique natural environment.
Behind the dunes of Long Island’s south shore, this residence is the graceful summer home of a New York couple and their college-aged daughters. Its composition of stacked, interlocking volumes emerges from the native flora and continues the undulation of the landscape and nearby ocean. Clean lines clearly demarcate the home’s functions, while gracious interiors and levels of integrated exterior spaces provide a welcoming character that flows with life’s transitions. A material palette of wood, stone, glass, and stucco borrows cues from surrounding natural elements, and allows a façade of varying transparencies to communicate the public and private uses of different spaces. Bridging family and function with social space, this beach house residence embodies the values of its occupants.
