This home, on two acres, near Mazama in the Methow Valley, was sited to take maximum advantage of a south-facing orientation. Its horseshoe shape creates a courtyard between the wings of the home which is cooler in the summer
The exterior of the Watermill retreat has a rustic simplicity of a “modern farmhouse”, mimicking the barns common to agricultural Long Island with simple geometric forms grounded in the landscape, natural wood siding, and metal roofs. The siting and shape of the house accomplishes privacy, views, and distinct outdoor spaces.
This modern energy efficient house was fabricated in Pennsylvania and transported to the site in East Hampton in five parts. Once on site, the parts were assembled and set onto the foundation and further finishes were installed.
