An East Hamptons abode is designed to be a comfortable setting for two, while also a perfect place to entertain family and friends.

Hamptons-based firm Bates Masi +Architects has recently unveiled one of its latest projects: the beautiful residence known as Georgica Cove. 

The team was hired by a couple looking to build a home on their beachside property that would be large enough to accommodate their love for entertaining. More so, the clients yearned for a design that would blend into the pastoral setting and fit with the vernacular building traditions of the region—predominantly shingle-style homes and barns.

To instill the desired sense of comfort and peace, it was important that the design blend with the setting and local building traditions.

Through ample research, the architects concluded they could achieve their clients’ wishes in an innovative way by referencing New England connected farms—multiple buildings/settings, each with distinct uses.

For instance, by offsetting or rotating one volume from the next, it could gain more light, air, and privacy from the other functions. 

The separate volumes are unified in their external appearance.
