Alfredo De Vido | Architects
House on Long Island - New York
The house's sweeping rooflines, detailing, muted palette and the use of wood both internally and externally, all show the influence of Japanese architecture. The architect lived and worked in that country for a number of years. Spaces inside the house are open to one another, making them adaptable to a variety of uses. A detailed wood cornice tracks around the living spaces and contrasts with white walls. The dark wood floor is inset with bluestones. The flat site is broken up into several distinct area, fenced and unified by bluestone paving and lush vegetation: an entrance court with ornamental gate and lily pond, in front of the house, and a secluded swimming pool behind the house.
