Nature Conservation House - East Hampton, New York
The design consists of two rectangular blocks, enlivened by a diagonal connection which penetrates the entire composition to form porches and decks at each end. The peaked roofs are set apart by a change in material from shingles to copper roofing at the center of the composition. Inside the house, the diagonal intersects the rectangular building, providing surprising vistas. A bold round column serves as a "hinge" between the entrance and the living areas. The living and dining room furniture, designed by the architects, is in tune with the overall house design.
