QUADRANGLE HOUSE (2000)
House for a young family situated on a private south facing sloping site, overlooking a large body of inland water (Bridgehampton, Long Island)
Both the 7000 s.f. House and the Land are quadra-sected by a north-south exterior site-circulation spine (marking the slope of the land to Long Pond) and an east-west interior house-circulation spine (the ³Galleries at each floor).
Crossing at the Entry to the house, the two circulation spines produce four quads (Entry Hill, Great Lawn, Sled Hill, and Pool Lawn) each with a different topographical character and relationship to the house.
Eleven exterior architectural spaces (porches, terraces, decks, etc.) appended to specific interior spaces at 3 levels address the four landscapes in a variety of domestic moments defined by privacy, sociality, adolescent play, and scenographic contemplation.
