The North Harbor Residence is located on a quiet peninsula in the hamlet of Sag Harbor. The site, a modest 1/3 acre lot, was chosen by a young couple seeking respite from the bustling city and space for a growing family. A steep front yard hinted at possible water views over the neighboring properties, but the solution was not without challenges. The compact building envelope and aggressive sky plane restricted height on the North and East sides of the property. The residence is presented as two “bar” volumes perpendicular along a linear axis: One bar sits parallel to the road. A yellow cedar rain-screen facade and a colorful patchwork of natural vegetation offer privacy at the front, while walls of floor-to-ceiling glass encourage a continuous flow through interior and exterior public space at the rear. The second bar cantilevers off the first. A covered outdoor lounge complete with a wood-burning fireplace is situated below, juxtaposed by a sunny pool, limestone patios, and an outdoor kitchen. Each floor offers an opportunity for outdoor entertaining. Off the second floor, a rooftop garden overlooks the pool and yard. From this space, an exterior staircase floats off the cantilevered volume, leading to a second roof deck, where unobstructed sunsets reflect over panoramic water views.
