Sustainable Getaway in East Hampton: Northwest Peach Farm

Northwest Peach Farm is another impressive contemporary residence designed by Bates Masi Architects, this time located in East Hampton, New York, USA. The crib ocuppies an area of 7,000 square feet and was especially designed as a getaway home for the clients’ extended family. This is why nothing was left to chance. The house offers opportunities for socializing, as well as meditation in solitude. Here is more from the architects: “The clients wanted this to be a gathering place for their family, full of memories for generations to come. Thus the materials were chosen not only for durability but also for their gradual changes over many years. The copper siding and roofing will slowly turn green as the weathering limestone becomes darker. However, the window system will stand the test of time unchanged. A geothermal heating and cooling system, green roofs, organic finishes, and triple glazed windows will minimize the structure’s environmental impact over the generations”. Do you find the design of the Northwest Peach Farm suited for a holiday home?
