Case Study House inspired residence in Montauk, New York Pentagram Architects

A pair of oceanfront houses have been designed on a set of adjacent lots in Montauk, New York, that capture the rarest of assets: large private outdoor space on the Atlantic Ocean.

Each house has its own identity, yet they share a vocabulary of materials, forms and intentions. The main house is earthbound: a low-slung single story composed of an open steel and glass wing and an embracing brick and wood one. Only the writing studio and outdoor fireplaces top the single story height. The guesthouse, by contrast, is nearly entirely airborne, barely touching the ground and creating a series of covered spaces and processional gateways to the main house. Conceptually, the guesthouse is the second floor of the main house, relocated to the entry side of the site where it participates in defining the large landscaped courtyard hovering 75 feet above the ocean.
