From the architect: We designed this Hamptons compound when the property’s existing, beloved Norman Jaffe house no longer fit our client’s needs. We began by designing a master plan for the 7.6 acre site. Our vision was for a series of buildings, varied in scale and use, that prioritizes connecting with the land.

We designed five compact, strategically placed new buildings – the Main House, North House, Pool Pavilion, Greenhouse, and Cottage. Their warm modernism complements the Jaffe house, which we renovated and moved to another area on the property.

The interiors marry easygoing comfort and honest, understated craftsmanship with elevated curating, as the family’s collection of significant European and American modern master furniture and fine art matures and mixes with simpler finds and furnishings. In a departure from more expected, summer watercolor palettes, a layering of natural modern materials and soft, weathered finishes brings the meditative surrounding woodlands and sea meadows into a rich indoor-outdoor relationship.

The compound is LEED Gold certified. The Main House demonstrates strategies used throughout to achieve aesthetic and environmental goals. The flat roof is an anchor for solar panels and begins a design language of horizontal and vertical planes. Canopies extending over outdoor spaces reference the roof gesture. They also diminish glare on the floor-to-ceiling windows, which illuminate the interiors with natural light. We worked closely with Alec Gunn of Gunn Landscape Architecture and interior designer Thomas O’Brien of Aero Studios on the project.
