Ferry Road House in North Haven, Suffolk County
Design: Blaze Makoid Architecture Architects
Location: North Haven, Suffolk County, New York, USA
Ferry Road House, North Haven
The homeowners wanted to see the water as they drove up to the house, which Blaze Makoid achieved by creating a glass cube at the center of the home that serves as the living room and affords views from the driveway straight through to the bay.
For a low-maintenance exterior, Makoid used teak as a soft, but durable material that ages well and creates a casual, beachy look. He selected limestone with a matte powdered finish, rather than a veined look. The limestone was sliced and laminated repeatedly, allowing for a flexible material which exceeds the area’s hurricane codes.
Inside the home, Makoid designed the private spaces to be secluded, and the public spaces to be grand and open. For privacy and to allow natural light inside, Makoid employed slats of rich teak over some of the windows for a screened effect, playing with the spacing of the louvers, allowing the outside to be seen from inside, but not vice versa. The screens create a beautiful effect indoors, with soft light bouncing off the walls.
The interior design is by David Scott. Everything is designed to flow from inside to out and to provide the family and their guests an amazing experience. The covered outdoor living room, replete with a television, heater and fireplace for a chilly evening, are just some of the resort-like amenities. Multiple seating and dining areas create numerous options for enjoying the home at different times of the day.
Landscape design by is Ed Hollander.
The challenge for this 7,500 square foot home on a two acre, waterfront lot in North Haven was to create a design that would take full advantage of the views across Sag Harbor to the southeast, while drawing late day sun through the house and onto multiple outdoor entertaining spaces as long as possible.
Entry to the house is gained by passing under a second floor bedroom wing – the ceremonial ‘threshold’ – into an open air courtyard, at which point the first views through a 1 ½ story glass great room reveal the patio spaces, pool and the harbor beyond.
Floor to ceiling, wall to wall glass panels open on both sides of the great room to create a true, indoor/outdoor lifestyle and allow the courtyard to expand the entertaining space for large events. A roof deck and outdoor fireplace over the one story wing allows for late day/early evening sunsets without interrupting views from any second floor spaces.
The 8 bedroom, eight and a half bath house includes a gym, office, family room and multiple outdoor spaces and is clad in a combination of limestone panels, mahogany and glass.
