The original 1990 house in this project was a quirky structure filled with nautical references. Seaponack House sits on the Peconic waterfront with 270-degree water views. Completed by Audrey Matlock Architect in 2016 with 8,000 SF in size, this project is an extensive renovation that embraces the aspirations of its modernist character.
Besides embracing its modernist character, the renovation also includes expanding the building to engage its awesome surrounding nature. The Peconic waterfront is a private outcrop of land that provides 270-degree water views. There is a new, elevated bedroom wing that faces the house across the pool.
The bedroom wing, existing house, and the pool are connected by a combined gallery/gathering space with a contoured roof. This roof riffs on the original building’s curvy forms uniquely. The house rooms surround the three-sided courtyard that opens to the bay, offering another awesome view to be seen.
The interior spaces offer a feeling of openness. There is a smooth flow between the common rooms on the ground floor while the large atrium connects the two floors. The land and watersides are linked through a combination of glass walls and courtyards throughout the house. The result of this project is a free-flowing home that weaves through the landscape casually.
