Project Description2009 RADA
Custom / More Than 3,500 Square Feet / Merit
Sited by an agricultural preserve in one of Long Island, N.Y.'s most exclusive enclaves, this new building wraps three floors of high-style living in a package that reads from afar as more potato barn than trophy home.
A masterfully detailed skin of teak slats serves as rainscreen siding at insulated walls and as a privacy scrim for open-air decks and porches. A great open-truss roof unifies the whole, which our judges called “a nice reinvestment in the barn as a starting place for a house.”
