Inside Out

Hamptons Modern, Outdoor Living Area

A densely wooded property surrounds this East Hampton modern pool cabana, providing the family and their guests with ample space to relax and entertain in the outdoors. The solid core serves as a visual privacy barrier from the nearby driveway and encloses a bath, changing room, and laundry. The covered area provides shade from the hot summer sun with seating and dining beside a large outdoor bar. Lastly, a modern trellis hangs over an additional lounging area and fire pit.

PRIVACY
The allowable footprint for an accessory structure in this area of the Hamptons was minimal. However, the design maximizes functionality by splitting apart the private and public spaces. Only the private areas become enclosed while the remainder of the structure simply provides cover for outdoor areas. The solid massing of the private space then creates a wall of privacy for the outdoor shower and entertainment areas.

CONNECTION WITH RESIDENCE
The fire pit, lounging space, and dining table all look back at the home’s staggered levels of decks and lawns and a gunite heated pool and spa. This also positions the pool house to become a primary focal point of the landscape from the home. A visual connection between the two structures was important to create balance throughout the property.
