This residence is a modern retreat, located in Kings Point, New York. It was an existing house that needed an entire transformation. The main change was the very narrow site the house sat on and how to make the drive up to it exciting. You can see our solution in the pictures of the exterior. Our contemporary design lends itself to the taste of our clients and their philosophy. The design juxtaposes modern living with the preservation of the fantastic water views while suiting the homeowner’s program requirements.
The blue limestone, which runs the entirety of the lower level, enhances the soft, rich interior palette. Different finishes of absolute granite and high gloss, wood lacquer were used to provide texture and sheen to vertical surfaces. The clients’ wide array of artwork was a key factor in the design. Vast, open spaces were needed to feature their extensive private collection, both inside and out.
Handcrafted millwork, custom windows and a double height entry and living area give way to sprawling open areas, all of which are significant characteristics of the house. Outdoor entertaining areas are nestled in the tranquility of verdant landscaping and the Long Island Sound serves as a picturesque backdrop.
