This Smith and Thompson Architects project in East Hampton originally was a 1920's tractor barn with a potato barn attached and is transformed into a residence. The flat roofed open and transparant addition for which I developed several elements is contrasting with older parts of the building which are gabled and have shingle siding. The dining and kitchen area is floating between the old and the new sections of the house and is articulated by a bay with a narrow deck that hangs above the entry courtyard. A light tower draws natural light from every direction. Another transparant tower with glassed-in stairwell gives access to the second floor and continues up to a roof deck on the third floor.
