Located near the heart of Southampton, this two‐story residence blends the owners’ desires for indoor/outdoor living with their appreciation for a minimal, clean‐lined aesthetic. The fresh and contemporary urban residence feels modern, sophisticated and inviting, with extensive use of natural light to ensure a sense of warmth. Providing larger open spaces for gatherings and events and more intimate spaces for everyday use, the flexibility of the home is thoughtfully executed.

Multi-functional interactive spaces surround a private courtyard, swimming pool and summer kitchen area with large windows and doors that allow for fluid movement in and around the house. The first floor plan encircles the courtyard space, providing both physical and visual connections to the outdoors. Upstairs, a terrace overlooking the pool connects to the master bedroom, exercise room and hall for two secondary bedrooms.

Inside, the interaction between up‐down is underscored by a generous custom skylight that floods the staircase with changing sun angles. A rich, natural material palette complements the owners’ vibrant art collection and unique furniture. Expansive windows and doors and sustainable features emphasize the connectivity and blur the boundaries of outdoor and indoor life.

Additional notable features include handmade long-format brick, rich wood surfaces, designer fixtures and finishes, a custom wine room and rain-screen facade. A photovoltaic array on the roof powers the house during daylight hours, while home automation technology controls the lighting, distributed audio and video, and advanced security.
