Cedar, reclaimed ipe, and Corten steel combine in a multigenerational home designed to gracefully age in place.

The home is located far from the road on the northwest corner of the property and oriented toward views of the water.

Put off by the site “insensitive” and wealth-flaunting homes that have popped up around the Hamptons, a couple with a five-acre property overlooking the Peconic Bay asked New York–based architect and interior design studio Mapos for a more understated weekend getaway that eschews flashy extravagance.

Located in the Hampton Bays, the Peconic House is sandwiched between an old-growth forest and the waterfront.

In response, the architects crafted a custom 4,000-square-foot home—dubbed the Peconic House—gently wedged into a hillock with sweeping views of the waterfront. 

To minimize the compound’s visual impact, an expansive green roof with native meadow grasses is set atop the structure, while a natural material palette helps camouflage the building into the landscape.
