Located in a small village in The Hamptons, the Watermill House is a renovated and expanded traditional cottage. The extension is clad similarly to the existing building, yet strikes a far more bold impression, with a dramatic vaulted ceiling and generous glazing. It houses a new living area, dining area, and kitchen, which were removed from the cottage to make room for a family room, home office, and guest suite. Notably, the extension also created a new main entrance for the home and reoriented the entire structure to the garden, swimming pool, and the neighboring farm.
