Inspired by a Cherished Past: Georgica Close Residence with a Refined Modern Form
Designed originally in the 1960s by one of the disciples of Marcel Breuer, Georgica Close in East Hampton is a home that has plenty of nostalgic and sentimental value to its owners. Post the storm surge created by Hurricane Sandy, much of the original home was extensively damaged and Bates Masi Architects were brought it to create a new residence for the family that borrowed heavily from its previous form and silhouette. The new residence embraces the overall design of the earlier house and you can see a certain midcentury modern flavor to it despite a clear contemporary style. With a stoic steel structure and a roof crafted using Cross Laminated Timber panels, this lovely house reinvents the past in its own special way!
