WATER MILL SITE WORKS
WATER MILL, NY
ON THE BOARDS
The objective with this property, a 60,000sf area of land next to a bay in Long Island, is to provide for a new Garage, a new Pergola at the existing Tennis Court, and to unify the property with a singular effort using the landscape. Designed in conjunction with Landscape Designer, Joel Loblaw, Inc., the approach to the house is shifted to its western edge, allowing one to travel its edge prior to making the slight descent to the Garage. The space between the House and the Tennis Court is treated as a Lawn bound by edges of field stone and steel.
The materials and form of the Garage draw from the materials and form of the original house, while making for a clean and crisp form. The interior is exposed, milled Douglas Fir framing while the east wall and clerestory are a cellular polycarbonate.
The Pergola then draws from the white trim of the house, and subsequent white frame of the Garage posts, and creates a white steel frame adjacent to the Tennis Court.
