Matthew Carbone has a sharp eye for form, visual rhythm, and perspective. From the grand scale of a city or landscape to the precision and nuance of a detail, his photographs express that buildings are more than the sum of their parts, and that they are designed, first and foremost, to serve people. Each frame is a consideration of these values. Based in New York City, he travels to photograph architectural projects around the United States and the world. Passionate about the built environment, Matthew worked for the American Institute of Architects in Columbus and set up his own photography studio in 2008. Matthew Carbone works for corporate, editorial, advertising, and architectural clients.
Our clients, a couple with 3 children, had purchased a triangular, wooded, corner lot on high ground in Amagansett, NY and contacted us to explore means of building a house for their summer and year-round-weekend use.
BIG has just announced Bjarke built an triangular shape tiny house. Called A45, the first prototype already in place in the Catskills, in upstate New York, was constructed by Klein. The idea behind the project was to create a house that could be fully customisable both inside and outside, with the small structure having the ability to be fully built on a functional site within just four – six months.
An existing three story house perched in the trees of Amagansett was in dire need of repair. Breathtaking views from the roof deck made the decision to renovate rather than replace the structure an easy decision.
The ‘lanes’ in Amagansett, New York, offer a nearly idyllic village life: adjacent to Main street, walking distance to ocean, but far enough to feel protected from it, walkable and dotted with a diverse range of houses and styles.
