Located in East Hampton, New York, this beautiful waterfront property had a charming gambrel-roofed cottage that had fallen into disrepair. We were asked to create a new home for a young family incorporating the original structure. We conceived the new house with a central pavilion flanked by two wings. The central pavilion was designed to accommodate the main living spaces and serve as the visual anchor. The intent was to create a narrative in which the new central pavilion is perceived as the original house while the cedar-shingled wings appear to be later additions.
