Residential Architecture: Quail Hill House by Bates Masi Architects: “..Approaching the house by the winding driveway, the gabled form, massive chimney, and shingled siding are all reminiscent of traditional houses on eastern Long Island. Looking closely, the shingles are, in fact, a woven screen of oak surveyors stakes, similar to those that dotted the steeply wooded lot when the clients first saw it. Similarly, the massive chimney that anchors the house to the site isn’t solid at all, but is actually made of thin concrete panels..” Vernacular inspiration with many subtle, playful touches, interesting interior volumes offering advantageous settings for a large contemporary art collection, abundant natural light, indoor/outdoor sensibility..
