Modern Home Taking Advantage of a Beautiful Landscape From Bates Masi Architects
Genius Loci Residence was designed by Bates Masi Architects and is located in East Hampton, New York, USA. According to the architects, “the house is composed of two simple taut volumes. The public and private living areas are in the waterside volume, all with spectacular views and access to the beach. Circulation, baths, and utilities are in the landward volume overlooking the pool. By offsetting the volumes vertically and horizontally, the surface area of the compact design increases, allowing for more windows to admit light and westerly breezes. This slippage also creates intimate outdoor spaces for bathing, entertaining, and dining.The deep frames in front of each volume provide privacy from neighboring properties while leaving the east and west facades open to views of the water. The frames create spaces that defy the conventional distinctions between indoors and outdoors.” Enjoy the photos below and lets us know what your opinions are regarding the design and architecture of this modern American home.
