About the Project

Rising from the East Hampton dunes, this contemporary home, fronted with glass and alternating bands of wood and stucco, harmonizes with the surrounding landscape.

The interior embodies the principles of modern architecture: minimalism and lack of ornamentation. The kitchen and open plan dining and living rooms overlook the wooded lot and pool, complete with a covered deck for three-season entertaining. High ceilings and expansive use of glass endow the space with airiness and light. Street-facing windows are shorter and higher on the wall for privacy.

The kitchen’s open field of vision is maintained by omitting upper cabinets with only the vent hood and two floating shelves placed above the countertop plane, gracefully finishing at a tall section housing a paneled refrigerator with freezer drawers and a pantry engineered to align perfectly with the adjacent appliance.

The color palette is beachy chic without being cliché. Bleached wood flooring hints at sandy shores, while the cabinetry finish is reminiscent of driftwood. Maintenance free white quartz counters and waterfall island end panels blend seamlessly with the walls. Housing two dishwashers, double trash, and even storage for serving platters, the 9’ island also accommodates four stools.

A perfect haven for relaxed living with a houseful of family and friends.

This project was done in collaboration with Hamptons-based firm Modern NetZero.
