Montauk Residence by Pentagram Architects «

  • Montauk Residence designed by Pentagram Architects and is located in Montauk, New York. The project consists of two separate buildings with distinct personalities: the main house and the guest house. Each of them has a generous outdoor area which takes full advantage of the closeness of the ocean. Especially built for a young couple (a film producer and a writer), the residence houses a writer’s studio which is located on the roof of the main house and an amazing looking home theater in the basement (the red room in the photos below).

    The guesthouse at the Montauk Residence designed by James Biber and his team at Pentagram Architects has won a Citation for Design in the 2009 AIA New York State Design Awards. The project was recognized in the Residential, Small Projects (under 2,000 sq ft) category of the competition. The guesthouse is adjacent to the main house, which received its own Citation for Design in the 2006 AIANYS awards in the Residential, Large Projects category.

    Each house has its own identity, yet they complement each other on the site. The guesthouse is supported on steel beams that give it the appearance of being almost entirely airborne, hovering over a pool and the ocean beyond. The guesthouse plan is modeled on a motel, with access to rooms off a continuous balcony that looks on the residence’s courtyard. The side facing away from the property has been louvered to conceal the neighbor’s house next door and at the same time preserve the ocean views and allow for air circulation.
