3 Whale Rock Lane Residence in East Hampton, New York by Eisner Design

Its entrance sequence requires one to circulate along a raised stone planter wall that acts as a landscaped transition from the exterior to the interior of the house.  The entryway occurs at the juncture of the two wings of an L-shaped plan.  One enters into the taller, one-and-a-half storey public living area wing, an open loft space containing the kitchen, dining and living space. The smaller private wing consists of three bedrooms.

Several elements of the plan are designed to facilitate spatial connection between the exterior and interior and spaciousness.  All major glazing is directed through the house toward exterior vista corridors.  At the entrance, the low stone wall housing Loriope plantings resides at the level of the interior floor, effectively extending the floor plane of the public living wing. Beyond the L-shaped kitchen towards the rear yard, the roof and floor extend out to become a covered outdoor dining deck.

Green concerns were a major factor in choosing materials, finishes & plantings throughout the project  The stucco house volumes are protectively wrapped by a long life standing seam metal roof. The reflective nature of the standing seam metal limits interior heat gain thereby reducing cooling loads.  All plantings in the landscape program are indigenous to the local environment.

Perhaps the most interesting concept of the project is articulated in how the standing seam metal wraps & protects the stucco volumes in similar fashion to how one’s hand might hold or cup an egg on its three sides. The decking of sustainable mahogany acts as the underside of the enveloping hand, aligning with the standing seam roof line above.
