Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown from New York based Tsao & McKown Architects have designed the Sagaponac House in 2007. The 4,500 square feet residence is located in a Long Island community, Wainscott. The architecture consists of two volumes, the upper level being a cube, while the one at the ground is built into the scenery, shaping the terrain for more intimacy.
The private rooms and the outdoor swimming pool have all the privacy they need, as they are not visible from the street. The connection between the first level and the pool makes the perfect spot for partying with some friends.
It all looks minimalist, but the simple lines are the ones that catch our attention, resulting this marvelous unexpected unity. The public spaces are placed above, while below there are hidden the private ones, creating intimate retreats to enjoy.
