Waterfront Estate

Location: Southampton, New York

Working to an expedited deadline for a repeat client, we simplified the architectural renovation of the 6,500-square-foot main house in favor of a timely cosmetic design. With expansive views across Shinnecock Bay as our focal point, we streamlined existing moldings and trims, created a soft color palette and installed gauzy window treatments to reflect the expansive estate’s dreamy setting.

We built the art program for this property around the client’s interest in Abstract Expressionism. In addition to paintings by prominent 20th-century artists including Michael Goldberg, Friedel Dzubas, and Miriam Schapiro, we introduced vibrant, contemporary works by the likes of Matti Braun, the Campana Brothers and Merete Rasmussen to interact with the rest of the space. All together, they bring a layered and modern richness that is unexpected from its Hamptons setting.
