Project Description

Water Mill Houses: Main House

Water Mill, NY

2008

This house was designed as the centerpiece of a 15-acre residential complex in Water Mill, NY. It stands on the highest peak of the property, allowing for unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape and shoreline. The structure is divided into two levels, arraying private spaces like bedrooms on the ground floor and locating more social spaces upstairs. To create a sense of privacy in the bedrooms, the façade of the ground floor filters light through heavyweight fiberglass-screened panels. On the other hand, the second level’s floor-to-ceiling windows create a sense of openness in the living spaces, offering expansive views of the forest and allowing ample natural light into the home. A rooftop terrace provides outdoor space with 360-degree views of the surroundings.
