New York’s Blaze Makoid Architecture is a multi-awarded firm that specializes in creating sophisticated, luxury homes in the most sought after locations. One of its jewels is Daniel’s Lane Residence, set in Sagaponack – the most expensive neighborhood of the Hamptons, Long Island.
The house is placed on a narrow, oceanfront lot, and it appears to hover off the ground due to an elevation of 17 feet above sea level, that’s been required in order to avoid floods. Built for a father with three children, the two story contemporary dwelling features a clean and simple wood & travertine facade, with large sliding glass walls that ensure unobstructed views of the ocean, and open the house onto the ocean side patio and pool.
The first floor contains an open plan living room, dining and kitchen, while the the second floor (imagined as a glass floating ‘drawer’) holds three identical children’s bedrooms running from west to east, plus a master bedroom with balcony, projecting out from the wall plane. The quiet elegance & clean lines of the residence are emphasized by the materials used, which include poured-in-place concrete floors, Calcutta marble cladding and afromosia millwork.
