Text description provided by the architects. This 15,000 sqf house is a short walk from the Atlantic Ocean, in an open field typical of eastern Long Island. An oversized garden wall anchors the building to the landscape. The rooms are organized around a large square courtyard. Bordering the courtyard, a marble-lined breezeway separates the public and private spaces.

The breezeway is long and narrow, allowing it — like the house itself — to be perceived as either grand or modest, depending on the viewer’s perspective. The second-floor spaces cantilever toward the ocean, affording elevated views from bedrooms and terraces. Setbacks transform what might have been oversized terraces into a series of modestly proportioned viewing platforms.
