Bates Masi Architects have designed this luxurious small house with simplicity design, located in Amagansett, NY, USA. Called Mako Residence, the form of the house, a series of boxes and turrets, was somewhat awkward looking. The south wall of this bedroom is a sliding glass door that opens onto a new deck and views of the ocean beyond. The roof cantilevers past the door to form a sunshade that stretches, ribbon-like, past the existing master bedroom windows and down to a new storage closet on the first floor.
On the first floor, a sleek kitchen allows the space of the former eat-in kitchen to become a proper dining room. The dining room is ideal for entertaining friends while the kitchen, opening onto a terrace in the private back yard, is a great setting for casual meals with the family.
