Daniel’s Lane Residence in Sagaponack, New York is an imposing mansion designed and developed by Blaze Makoid Architecture. From afar, the creative team at Makoid wanted the structure to appear simple and clean: “The two story travertine entry façade is highlighted with a single opening accentuated by a cantilevered stair landing that hovers off the ground. A cut and fold in the wall plane bends to allow for one large glass opening, from which an over scaled wood aperture containing the main stair landing cantilevers“. The second level was imagined as a glass drawer suspended over the main floor below.
Service spaces, as well as the living and dining areas are located below, while three identical children’s bedrooms run from west to east on the second level, together with a master bedroom with a large balcony. Daniel’s Lane Residence was inspired by the iconic architect Norman Jaffe’s Perlbinder House(1970) and by Tod Williams’ Tarlo House (1979).
