Stelle Architects

This waterfront property unfolds in a sequence of views, both revealed and concealed, a kind of Kabuki shadow play that starts at the driveway and snakes down the entire length of the five-acre lot. "It adds to the experience of arrival," says the bachelor client who wanted a peaceful escape. All plant materials used in the project were native species and have been orchestrated for maximum effect.

The main level is a 90-foot slab of glass and steel raised to gain water views and summer breezes. It floats like a bridge, perpendicular to the walkway. Specially fabricated screens of horizontal teak lattice break up the expanse of glass. They serve as brise soleils to block the sun along the south side and provide a modicum of privacy. "I wanted a lot of wood elements," the client says. "I didn't want a cold, modern box."

Inside, the house is furnished with spartan restraint where views of water and wild sunsets are the real decoration. The central living area has been geared for entertaining with freestanding kitchen islands and a seating area clustered around a fireplace. A master bedroom suite lies to the east while guest rooms and a bathroom lie to the west.
There is hardly any distinction between inside and outside. The central living area extends out towards a terrace with a swimming pool that spills over the edge of a retaining wall to make a gently splashing waterfall. In a protected corner beneath the house is a terrace and open-air fireplace that can be used on rainy, blustery days.
"It's not a precious house," says the client. "You just hose it down at the end of the weekend."

Wanting to downsize - What is the square footage of this house?
   Comment   June 30, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

...yet it is revealed in this view. (The previous photo's cantilever is on the left here.) That resistance is an extension of the second floor on the opposite side, working like a balanced teeter-totter. A closer look at this photo (and the additional photos on the architect's web page) also reveals that a brick fireplace provides additional support underneath the projection. And it looks like a cozy place to hang out on a chilly Hamptons night.
Modern. Another Miesian house is this house on Long Island by Stelle Architects. A solid bar with pool supports and sits perpendicularly to the glass box. The open floor plan is apparent in the transparency through the box. This house is clearly modern, almost orthodox except for the manner in which it is raised above the surrounding dunes.
In one of the other Hamptons — Bridgehampton — we find this house striking for cantilevering on both ends. This gesture is not arbitrary, as it lets the dunes and path pass under the house with minimal intervention. The glass walls take in views on all sides.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: International Style Celebrates Pure Form
In another New York area house, the evening illumination highlights the structural transparency important to this architecture. Notice here that a rectangular upper-level plan spans and cantilevers the lower supporting blocks, one being perpendicular in plan to the upper floor, which contains a swimming pool on the other side.Notice that the style adapts to conventionally framed structures, as in the first example. Steel is more costly, but the same effects can be achieved in structural wood-framed, concrete or block walls. Even with newer materials, such as rammed earth, this aesthetic can be seen. See the Arizona house second to last below for the astonishing results of this idea.
