In a world of busy schedules and unending notifications, simplicity offers comfort and relaxation. This modern cottage in Sagaponack, a village in Suffolk County, New York, embraced the magic of simplicity. Dressed in a wooden skin, this impressive modern cottage was named after its location: Sagaponack Cottage. Imagined by New York-based Axis Mundi Design, the modern cottage provides an inviting first impression to guests with lounging and get-together spaces on the deck, before revealing bright and modern design inside.

The interior design of this minimalist cottage contrasts with the warm wooden siding on the facade. Black, white, and grey were combined to shape an elegant and highly modern design. Splashes of color hint to the existence of private quarters calmly decorated with shades of blue. Wood is present in the bedroom and bathroom to warm up the atmosphere and make a transition to the outdoors.

The inspiring modern cottage photographed by Mark Roskams speaks the language of simplicity. You might want to compare this modern cottage with a colourful and light-filled apartment in Manhattan which Axis Mundi Design also designed. Enjoy!
