* Residential Architecture: Genius Loci, Montauk by Bates Masi + Architects

Posted by the editors on Friday, 27 April 2012

Residential Architecture: Genius Loci, Montauk by Bates Masi + Architects: “..the dwelling responds to the ‘the spirit of the place’ by strengthening the cultural context and unique characteristics of the landscape. formerly a horse ranch, the residence is located at one of the highest elevations in the town, surrounded by green pastures. approaching from the south, the design appears to be two modest and separate one-storey farm houses. circling around to the north of the building, the structure unfolds to reveal a more extensive elevation..”  Vernacular, almost modest, exterior, richly varied and magnificent interior; wood, extensive glazing, natural light, wonderful views..
