Residential Architecture: Bluff House by Robert Young: “..Perched on a bluff overlooking Block Island Sound (Montauk, New York, US), the property is a flag lot at the edge of a new subdivision, bordered on three sides by water, wetlands, and woods. The client asked us to design a house with a minimal impact on the pristine landscape, maximum exposure to the views and all the amenities of a year round vacation home..The basic requirements of each space were considered integrally with the effects of sunlight, breezes and views. The house was conceived as a lens, continually framing and magnifying the subtle changes in the surrounding environment..” Extensive glazing, natural light, lovely views; contextuality; vertical wood cladding..
