Guest House

Guest House is part of a large estate in the Hamptons directly adjacent to Mecox Bay. This house is the third piece which acts as the sole contemporary addition to the estate. Two simple gable-shaped volumes of glass are shrouded in horizontal western red cedar wood slats, providing a delicate, layered interior experience while alluding to traditional barn forms in the region. The two primary sections of the house create a dialogue between public and private life: the southern form for cooking, relaxing, and poolside dining, and the northern form for more intimate bedroom and bathing spaces. Within the double-height great room, a perfect rectangular form is a visual and spatial contrast that serves as the kitchen, pantry, and pool bath. Full height glass walls invite sunlight throughout the open interior and sliding wall panels allow natural ventilation. Each volume overlooks a pool that faces the ocean beyond.
