Project Description

Water Mill Houses: Bunkhouse

The Bunk House, part of a residential complex in Water Mill, NY, was designed as a place for the client’s children and their friends to sleep and play. To minimize the impact on the landscape, the house is partially embedded into the sloped topography, while the upper level—which arrays three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a dining area—cantilevers above the forest floor. Through the thoughtful use of straightforward materials like poured concrete, glass, wood, and cement board, 1100 Architect was able to deliver this distinctive and contemporary structure in a cost-effective way.
