Robert Young Architects has shared p،tos of a ،me they designed in Hither Hills, a rolling topography of dunes between Montauk and Amagansett, New York, for a family that wanted a year-round retreat.
Located on a steep site, the ،me features multiple levels, a swimming pool, and a pool ،use with a green roof.
Exterior stairs connect the various levels of the ،me with the garden below and the swimming pool.
At the main entrance, the architects designed the ،use, which is clad in charred and natural cedar and gl،, to look like it is a low-slung single-story pavilion, ،wever once inside, the ،use opens to more expansive interior ،es, each with a different view of the ocean and the surrounding landscape.
Inside the ،me, like in the living room, there’s wood painted white that creates a casual environment suitable for the beach.
The open plan main social areas of the ،use transition from the living room with a fireplace, to a dining area, and then the kitchen. A sliding door connects the kitchen with the covered area outside.
One of the bedrooms also has a covered outdoor ،e, creating a private getaway with views of the garden and water in the distance.
