Daniel's Lane Residence by Blaze Makoid Architecture
The residence Blaze Makoid Architecture created for a father with three children in Sagaponack on the Eastern Shore of Long Island was inspired by the iconic architect Norman Jaffe's Perlbinder House (1970) and Tod Williams' Tarlo House (1979) but with drilled his and his firm's signature of designing residences have a quiet elegance Furniture That Are Uniquely suited to each client. As in all of Makoid's work, there is a cohesiveness Furniture unites the architecture with its interiors and the site. The lines between indoors and out blur As They Become the greater part of the whole.
The client put his trust in Makoid's ability to find the property and design a residence devoid of anything extraneous. His mandate-he only wanted a house Furniture was not 'busy'.
Sited on a narrow, one-acre, oceanfront lot, the design of this house was one of the first projects in the Village of Sagaponack to be AFFECTED by the 2010 revisions to FEMA flood elevations, requiring a first floor elevation of approximately 17 feet above sea level allowance with a maximum height of 40 '. All construction was required to be located landward of the Coastal Erosion Hazard Line. The location within a high velocity (VE) wind zone added to the planning and structural challenges.
Makoid wanted the structure to vẻ simple and clean upon arrival. The two story entry travertine façade is highlighted with a single opening accentuated by a cantilevered stair landing afromosia Furniture hovers off the ground. A 'cut and fold' in the wall plane bends to allow for one large opening glass, wood from có an over scaled aperture containing the main stair landing cantilevers. A layer of service spaces run parallel to the wall plane prior to creating a threshold Reaching the horizontal expanse of the open plan living room, dining area and kitchen Furniture stretches along the ocean side of the house. Fifteen-foot wide floor to ceiling sliding glass panels maximize the ocean view and create easy access to the patio and pool beyond.
The second floor is travertine and glass imagined as a 'drawer' floating above the glass floor below. Three identical children's bedrooms run from west to east, setting a rhythm Furniture is punctuated by a master bedroom with balcony Furniture projects from the wall plane. It is clad in the same wood as the stair landing afromosia. The quiet elegance and clean lines of the house are accentuated by the materials Furniture also include poured-in-place concrete floors, Calcutta marble cladding and afromosia Millwork
