Wedged between a field of wildflowers and the Atlantic coastline, the Hamptons House uses a transparent facade to take advantage of both views. The residence takes on an unconventional appearance for its seaside location. Traditional cedar shingles have been replaced for a sleek mixture of steel, glass, and wood. Running parallel with the shore, the home has a slight break in it to provide the best glimpses of the neighboring ocean. The exterior palette makes its way inside. An abundance of glazing illuminates the living spaces while timber planks create a path throughout the two-story interior by way of an open staircase and suspended walkway. Wrapping around a poolside terrace, the ground floor seamlessly transitions to the outdoors allowing inhabitants to enjoy the landscape and the coastal climate.
