The residence located in East Hampton, New York, USA was designed by Bates Masi Architects and completed in 2013. It is built adjacent to a wetland which is a challenge in its construction. The first floor structure is made high enough to avoid flooding.
The structure of this house uses pilings to establish an artificial ground plane. An empty area under the house can be used for parking or otherwise. Abundance of water in the soil is used for photovoltaics. While on the roof is installed a modular planting system.
Inside the house show off sliding glass doors to ensure the inside of the house get enough light. An innovative structural system makes buildings more circulating. The living room offers the comfort for chatting with a sofa, a simple coffee table and a fireplace. The entire building both interior and exterior is covered by wood.
