    Leroy Street Studio

leroy street studio, new york city

Sited by an agricultural preserve in one of Long Island, N.Y.'s most exclusive enclaves, this new building wraps three floors of high-style living in a package that reads from afar as more potato barn than trophy home.

A masterfully detailed skin of teak slats serves as rainscreen siding at insulated walls and as a privacy scrim for open-air decks and porches. A great open-truss roof unifies the whole, which our judges called “a nice reinvestment in the barn as a starting place for a house.”
