SAGAPONACK GUEST HOUSE

A sleek guest house retrofit on an existing footprint of a rustic 650­ square­foot one­bedroom shack, located on historic Sagaponack farm. The existing main farmhouse itself was not particularly large so GGArchitect was commissioned to tear down the old shack and provide additional living space. The existing old house was located only 8 feet away from the property line which meant that as per “pyramid law” the eaves on that side could not be higher than 8 ft. This law governed the shape and volume of the structure because could not expand outside the existing footprint which was grandfathered in. The 16 feet tall glass and steel airplane hangar door was sourced from a hangar door manufacturer. It tilts open at the touch of a button and brings the interiors outdoors while simultaneously serving as a glass awning that shelters the adjacent deck.As seen in Hamptons C and G magazine Nov 2017 issue collaboration with GGArchitect
