A Sumptuous Retreat from New York for an Interior Designer and a DJ

Bates Masi Architects designed the Robins Way House in Amagansett, as a complete renovation and addition of a 1960’s kit house.

The clients, an interior designer and a DJ, were looking for a country retreat from New York City.

The house was gutted and reduced down to the skeletal framework of the original kit set ranch house.

A design and textural vocabulary was developed that integrated the traditional patina and history of aged buildings in the region.

The history of the house was preserved with well-chosen new materials like the slate wall perfectly balancing the chunky white china and the patina of the aged timber.

The newly constructed interior cabinetry was faced in reclaimed barn wood.

Typical of the tasteful touches is a charming Swedish chandelier that is rusted and aged, yet a stripped-down and elegant shape.

To hide a system of speakers used by the DJ, natural rope was threaded between the ceiling joists, creating a novel and sumptuous texture.

Clerestory windows were added above the original low ceiling of the kit set ranch house to a more contemporary cube shape, while lighting the interior from all four sides.

Unifying the exterior is a dark stained cedar siding that wraps all of the exterior facades and transitions to the matching frames of the replaced windows and doors.

The transition to sumptuous retreat is complete.
