A magnificent contemporary style villa built almost rural in Amagansett in the New York area. Offering a spacious interior with very large volumes and a beautiful terrace with outdoor pool patio. The environment around this house surrounded by trees that shade much so that the traditional impression emerged. The structure of the house that optimize efficiency in order to reduce costs but still elegant. Houses of the hill which is in harmony with the landscape and panoramic views. A large glass wall intended to optimize the sunlight that comes into the house, the walls using precast concrete and not only that, a sturdy chimney made of thin concrete plate, interior applied this modern house, reminiscent of traditional shades.

Entering the house, with a view of the pool and gardens beyond, the wall enclosing the stair looks like translucent stone. One has to look very carefully to see that it is a double paned glass wall filled with small seashells, a reference to the nearby beaches. The double-height living/dining room is a compatible scale and space for the large works of art and family gatherings. The fireplace surround reflects fragmented images of the art and surrounding landscape while its crystalline appearance defies its humble origins: polished stainless steel military dog tags.
