Bates Masi Architects have designed the vacation house in East Hampton, NY, USA . Called Re-cover Residence, the new owners sought to rejuvenate the house while preserving its spaces, seasoned tones, and texture. The south wall and deck of the house were dismantled to make room for the new construction, the cypress boards and cedar decking were carefully salvaged and machined into new siding, fine scrim material, stair treads and risers. In the modernized kitchen and dining terrace, a dense glacial sedimentary sandstone is used for its fine workability into a variety of finishes.
