Robert Young Architecture + Interiors a New York-based firm, has designed what’s called the ‘Kettle Hole House’, a rehabilitation of a single family house in East Hampton, New York. Originally constructed in the 1980s, the outdated structure was permeated with bands of glazing, increasing transparency through the home to continue views to the woods behind and introduce dappled daylight into the interior. Cubic and rectangular volumes are mixed with horizontally striated cedar cladding, strongly related to the pine trees standing within the surrounding grounds in a peaceful manner.
Opening the entry foyer to a double height space, the bordering rooms on the lower and upper have been visually expanded and linked to each other. Open riser stairs with treads formed from steel plates connected to a translucent partition maintain an airy presence, allowing light to pass through the material. Dwellers are continuously offered vistas into the forest, fostering a relationship with nature.
