New York-based firm Robert Young Architecture + Interiors has designed ‘Kettle Hole House’, a rehabilitation of a single family dwelling in East Hampton, New York. Originally constructed in the 1980s, the outdated structure was permeated with bands of glazing, increasing transparency through the home to continue views to the woods beyond and introduce dappled daylight into the interior. Cubic and rectilinear volumes are unified with horizontally striated cedar cladding, responding to the pine trees standing within the surrounding grounds.
Opening the entry foyer to a double height space, the bordering rooms on the lower and upper have been visually expanded and linked to each other. Open riser stairs with treads formed from steel plates connected to a translucent partition maintain an airy presence, allowing light to pass through the material. Dwellers are continuously offered vistas into the forest, fostering a relationship with nature.
