urban graffiti

29 Nov

Most people tend to think of graffiti as subversive art

spray-painted in the dead of night on urban walls.

Some artists, however, including Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever

and Kurt Wenner, defy that stereotype, painting and chalking

openly on city streets and sidewalks.

Situated on a breathtaking waterfront site on theNorth Fork of Sag Harbor, NewYork, this 7,500 square foot home was designed as a shared vacation home for four brothers and their families. A collaborative effort between the varied Clients and Cecil Baker + Partners yielded a contemporary home that pays homage to the Eastern Long Island rural vernacular.

Skillfully built by Greg D’Angelo Construction, the home is comprised of three distinct staggered forms, set back from one another in order to optimize both the water view and privacy. The two wings take on traditional cedar-clad, pitched-roof geometry while the central piece, a three-story glass box, links them together and anchors the home. The two car garage, with a private living space above, projects out from the main house towards the street via a breezeway and defines a private garden, overlooked by the dining room.

The interior of the home    integrates warm, textural materials and clean modern lines. Extensive use of full-height windows, floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall and an operable overhead glass door, creates an indoor-outdoor living experience from every room and floods the home with natural light. The subtle choreography of the interior space lends flexibility to the Client for both entertaining as well as for sheltered, intimate use of the home.

The open plan of the first floor transitions, via a light-filled atrium, into the more intimate second floor which includes: two full master suites facing the bay, a guest room with spectacular water views, and a children’s room that overlooks the garden. The glass atrium also gives access to a third floor roof terrace with unobstructed views in all directions.
