We are huge fans of Bates Masi Architects (previous posts here), so I had to share yet another one of their spectacular projects. This one is a 6000 sq ft vacation home located on 2.3 acres in Water Mill, New York. Located on a creek-front property, the site contains two culturally significant structures designed by Andrew Geller and a diversity of landscape plantings. The two Geller structures, a small house and studio, were built in 1962. Common to Geller’s architecture, a boardwalk connects the two structures. A conservation easement on the property protects the two Geller structures, Yew garden and iris, while allowing for the addition of a new main house. The owners requested a design that would unify these disparate elements. I adore the boardwalks – I have always had a thing for decks so this is a total dream for me, and such a great way to join all of the elements on the property.
