Located in East Hampton, New York, Bull Path is a residential project of a 6,200-square-foot house by BMA Architects. It is a big modern house with a pair of two-storey volumes oriented in an offset ‘T’ configuration.
This project is located in East Hampton on a long, two-acre site. The site is sloped steeply along the eastern property line. The area is heavily wooded with mature pine trees, offering the house an awesome nature to enjoy.
At the approach to the house, large walls of floating stone panels are incorporated to provide privacy to the street and guest parking and create a level of monumentality as well. A pair of two-story volumes can be found behind these panels.
This house has a two-story glass entry link that can frame the stunning distant views around the property. There is also a 12-foot by 75-foot reflecting/swimming pool outside.
The offset ‘T’ configuration can cradle the play lawn and built outdoor spaces, maximizing daylight and southern exposure too.
An open-plan living room, dining room, and kitchen are located on the east/west volume at the ground level. The master suite can be found on the second floor.
An outdoor living and dining space in the column-free leg of the north/south volume is sheltered from the elements by the children’s bedrooms on the second floor. A fifty-five-foot beam that rests on a single ‘super column’ supports this wing.
The above-grade program is completed with a family den, home office, and guest suite.
An extensive subterranean level in this house extends beyond the first two floors’ footprint. It is a lower level that houses more lively and boisterous activities for the inhabitants with garden space, a terrace, and a patio.
There is also a home bar, game room, home theater, gym, and playroom for children. The home bar opens onto a private patio.
