Dune Road Residence by Stelle Architects
By Freshome.com on Jan 18, 2012
Dune Road Residence is a three-story contemporary home designed by Stelle Architects and located in Bridgehampton, New York. This new project was built after the demolition of a former residence constructed here, as present standards require a much higher elevation, adapted to the coastal terrain. Here is more from the architects: “The goal wasÂ to keep the existing scale and dynamics of the site and design a residence that reflected the footprint and spirit of the original home. Materials for the new house include Alaskan cedar shingle panels interspersed with glass sections. The home has three levels: one for the owners, one for their guests, and one for living and dining. A simple glass and shingle pavilion overlooks a negative edge pool while a path from the garage leads through a natural seaside landscape along the pool and up to the house. Solar control is achieved though the use of overhangs in the southern exposures. Extra thick walls allow for superior insulation, and a geothermal system is employed for cooling“.
