Rebuilding an East Hampton Classic

Built in the 60s, this original modernist home built by a Marcel Breuer disciple was flooded and destroyed.
The team of Bates + Masi has rebuilt the site and now the home reborns as a Modern Building.
The living room features a timeless STUA Costura sofa as a centerpiece.

Project: Bates Masi + architects

Bates Masi + architects

The clients of this new home had been living in a house built in the 1960’s designed by a disciple of Marcel Breuer, one of the “modernist masters”. The site is situated along the shore of a coastal lagoon, and became a victim of the storm surge from Hurricane Sandy. Distraught by the destruction of their home, the clients sought to rebuild in an effort to restore the strong emotional connection they had to the previous dwelling.

The architecture’s recognition of history allows the new home to become a familiar part of the couple’s lives, a child of the previous home. Drawing from the client’s memories, the new home becomes meaningful to them, restoring and strengthening their sense of place.
