Bridgehampton Modern Saltbox
This modern saltbox house, located in Bridgehampton, New York, is a ground-up construction two-story home completed in Fall 2016.
The house is an elongated rectangle creating a simple and cost-efficient envelope with a pitched roof to endure the extreme weather conditions of Eastern Long Island. The design intent was to reference the more traditional architecture of the region including the saltboxes and farmhouses that still dot the area.
The building is oriented so the long axes face due north-south. In the main living space, custom windows follow the roof line to flood the space with southern light. Sliding doors open onto a wide deck and face a pool proportioned to match the house.
