An opening cuts through this Hamptons residence by Marvel Architects, revealing an infinity pool and Peconic Bay beyond when viewed from the driveway.
The three-bedroom Red Creek Road Retreat was completed as a weekend residence in the popular vacation town of Southampton, on the South Fork of New York’s Long Island. The house overlooks Peconic Bay, a short distance inland from the Atlantic Ocean.
“The house has stunning views to both The Great Peconic Bay and the forest, providing dramatic changes in light and shade throughout the day,” said Manhattan-based Marvel Architects in a project description. “The residence’s geometric shape frames unique views of the water and surrounding landscapes.”
In the plan, the home comprises two volumes that intersect at an angle. Where they meet, the architects created an opening on the ground level that forms a passage towards the back of the property and frames views of the landscape. Sticking to a muted palette throughout the home, Marvel Architects allowed building elements such as the exposed wooden structure and concrete fireplace to stand out, Colourful accents are brought in with bright furnishings, rugs, and wall art.
The exterior is finished with horizontal cedar planks, with a black metallic roof. “The house is wrapped in natural cedar cladding, a modern ode to its natural surroundings,” said the studio.
