This thoroughly modern home in East Hampton, NY was built on the site of a previously existing home that did not adequately satisfy the new owners’ needs. Interestingly, it literally sits atop the very foundation the previous home occupied due to zoning restrictions. New York based Bates Masi Architects nonetheless tailored the new home exactly to the owners’ specifications. Upon approaching the house, the elemental cube shape and monochromatic color scheme are its most striking features, starkly contrasting the surrounding landscape. The exterior design employs a tiered approach, with each level of the house stepping back and creating exterior walkways and terraces. The monochromatic palette is carried into the interior where the architect used white limestone paired with broad, blank walls. The walls themselves were left blank to allow the owners to display their extensive art collection without the décor detracting from it. The end result is a sleek, minimalist home that exudes a gallery-like atmosphere.
