The Hamptons, Shelter Island, NY.
A complete renovation of a 19th century farmhouse that originally functioned as working dairy, the building’s original service wing was demolished and replaced by a new two-story addition containing a large kitchen, dining room, master bedroom, bathroom and study. While faithful to the house’s place in history, the new wing offers moments of modernity like the oversized apex window in the master bedroom and corner windows in the dining room, which flood interior spaces with light. Interior colors were influenced by the owner’s collection of antique Turkish rugs and contemporary art. New bluestone terraces merge interior entertaining space with outdoor garden space. An oval shaped pool resides away from the house on the far side of a secluded slope surrounded by birch trees and hydrangea.
