The Surfside Residence sits within the bluffs of Montauk, a beach community in East Hampton, New York, where summer dreams are made. Designed by Steven Harris Architects and Rees Roberts and Partners (interiors and landscape) as a series of volumes, the home blends the interior and exterior spaces, extending the square footage.
A glass box makes up one of the lower volumes and the transparent structure contains the kitchen, living, and dining rooms. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors fully open letting the space continue outdoors.
The picturesque swimming pool wraps around the glass volume making the enticing water visible from every room.
The upper volume houses the master bedroom wing that’s designed as an open floor plan. It hovers over the pool and gives the owners views of the ocean.
When the sliding glass doors are open, it’s almost like you’re living outdoors. The glass volume is attached to a structure that contains the garage and a guest wing above.
Landscaping plays a key role in the design of the house making it feel like the home is meant to be there.
