The Ultra Modern Dune Road Residence, New York

This contemporary low key two-story house is sited on a classic ocean front site in Bridgehampton, New York.

The original house was built into the dune before current coastal construction standards making it necessary to secure a variance. Stelle Architects set out to keep the existing scale and dynamics of the site and designed a residence that reflected the footprint and spirit of the original home.

Materials for the new house include Alaskan cedar shingle panels interspersed with glass sections. The home has three levels: one for the owners, one for their guests, and one for living and dining. A simple glass pavilion overlooks a negative edge pool while a path from the new garage  leads through a natural seaside landscape along the pool and up to the house.
