As one of the last remaining estate properties located in a historic district of East Hampton Village, this single family compound was designed to embrace the traditional qualities of the surrounding community in a refined yet humble manner.
The property, which consists of two building lots, is able to accommodate a main residence along with a number of accessory structures. In order to properly scale the new structures within the local context, the building masses were minimized by designing them as a series of pavilions connected by passageways. These pavilions reflect the local architectural language which is known for traditional gabled forms, white-washed masonry, wood siding, and formal gardens. The new design minimizes the architectural detailing and ornamentation which provides a simple, yet refined backdrop to the formal setting. Seen as an abstraction of the traditional formal garden, the landscape design consists of a minimal plant palette which meanders it's way into the numerous courtyards created by the architecture.
