With an outstanding use of wood and glazed facades on both ends, the luxury home spreads over 6,500 square feet (aprox. 600 square meters). Located in Bridgehampton, New York, this Mahogany, glass and Travertine dream home blends building materials and spatial connections in a spectacular way. A brainchild of Bates Masi Architects, Sam’s Creek residence engages views from the street and guides them through glass walls to the back garden. Here, the pool, barbeque and patio await guests with their uncomplicated, minimalist design.
The owner requested a home that could encompass different programs that remain separate from each other at all times: “a dinner party could take place while simultaneously entertaining a group of children, or guests could come and go without disturbing the rest of the family.” Transparency from front to back ensures an open spatial relationship, constructing a light-flooded atmosphere.
You might remember the Noyack Creek Residence part of the same architects` portfolio – it beautifully displays a more diffused use of natural wood. In contrast, Sam’s Creek was organized with the help of wood details shaping a luxuriously warm and inviting collection of spaces. Long Mahogany boards shape the volumes on both the inside and outside, creating an opaque “curtain” that hides the interiors from indiscreet eyes, creating the perfect amount of privacy.
