Single Family Residence
East Hampton, NY
Architecture & Interior Design
A young professional looking for a retreat from the city purchased a small piece of land that abuts a national park. The nearby park reminded him of his childhood summers spent camping with his family. Due to the size of the property, the client desired a house that would provide ample privacy from nearby neighbors while embracing the simple, outdoor lifestyle he grew to love as a child.
The home is divided into multiple pavilions connected by a corridor that meanders it's way through a series of courtyards. Every space within the house overlooks a courtyard which prevents direct views from the neighboring homes. The courtyards are landscaped with native trees and grasses that further blur the boundary between interior and exterior spaces.
