TableTop explores the concept of contextual contradiction. By allowing both the existing 1960's suburban ranch typology and the new addition to live free of stylistic constraints, the project seeks a contextual harmony.
The rotated forms house a lounge and gym while allowing for intimate terraces which overlook the woodland Long Island property. A full-service project scope allowed for careful detailing as well as furniture and art selection.
The rotated forms were oriented on the "TableTop" to maximize views of the woodland property, address passive solar strategies and activate exterior spaces.
The video below shows the initial presentation to the client and explores the fundamental concept of the "Tabletop" addition.
