Architecture and interior design firm Mapos, have designed a modern home in the Hamptons, New York, for a longtime client who requested a multi-generational family retreat overlooking Peconic Bay.

The home is wedged into a hillock just north of a 70 foot tall sycamore tree, and has been designed to preserve the tree’s sun exposure. The green roof has been planted with native meadow grasses to somewhat camouflage the house, and to minimize the project’s impact on the watershed.

The house features a palette of concrete, cedar, reclaimed ipe wood, and Corten steel, which soften the overall appearance of the house. Over time, the materials will slowly develop a natural patina, allowing them to blend into and become part of the landscape.

Inside, there are steps that lead down into the living room. A fireplace has been used as a partition to help define the separate areas of the living space, all of which enjoy a water view through the 100-foot-long glass wall.

At the end of the living room, there’s the dining room that features a built-in wine storage area. A sliding glass door opens the dining room to the terraced deck outside.

The 200-foot terrace steps down the hillock in parallel to the residence, and it has an outdoor kitchen and dining level, a sun deck with a built-in lounge, and a 75-foot infinity-edge lap pool that extends to the west.

Back inside, and adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen. Black and white patterned tiles line the wall and complement the white cabinets with black countertops. An exterior shutter can be closed across the window, hiding the kitchen from view from the front of the house.

Accessed through a door off to the side of the kitchen, or through a door on the front of the house, is a mud room. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets, hooks, and open shelving, provide plenty of space to store coats and shoes.

Located behind the headboard is the bathroom. The vanity has the same view as the bed, while the bathtub looks out onto a small private deck.

The lower level of the home has multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, a playroom, storage, a laundry and mechanical room, and a bunkroom.
