Speculative House

2015, Amagansett, NY

Built on spec, this house is for another kind of speculating, as well. This peaceful enclave near the beach is perfect for thinking, wondering, hypothesizing. The house is organized around a central stair tower that offers views as one ascends. At the top is a room for speculation with views to every direction and access to a dramatic roof deck. To the left of the tower are functional rooms on two floors — kitchen, dining, bedrooms. On the right is a lofty great room.
