Situated on a secluded lot in Quogue and offering views of the bay from its rooftop terrace, this new modern house is composed of a series of stacked rectangular volumes that loosely form an L-shape. Clad in tongue-and-groove horizontal cedar and punctuated by square and rectangular windows, the house features multiple glass doors on the ground level that slide into the wall. All public spaces — living room, dining room, family room and kitchen — flow seamlessly onto the ipe wood terrace and lap pool. Above are three bedrooms, the library and a second-floor roof garden, all of which provide access to the rooftop terrace. Ground source heat pumps, an extremely well insulated envelope, and solar panels are some of the elements that provide this 3,400 square-foot house with sustainable and efficient energy.

+ About Austin Patterson Disston Architects
Austin Patterson Disston Architects is a full-service architectural and planning firm with offices in Southport, Connecticut and Quogue, Long Island. Founded in 1982 the firm includes three partners: McKee Patterson, AIA, Stuart Disston, AIA, LEED GA, and David Austin, AIA, and a staff of 27 — 5 registered architects, 3 LEED accredited and 17 architects/designers. The firm’s work is largely focused on bespoke projects, residential, hospitality and private clubs. “We feel confident doing a broad spectrum of styles and types: renovations, restorations, additions, apartments and new residences,” notes Mr. Patterson. Our design approach respects the integrity of both the built and natural contexts that make every building site unique. The partnership brings to each project a thorough knowledge and understanding of architectural precedent and fresh design solutions that are appropriate to a project’s context and responsive to the clients’ needs and aspirations.
“I would not say that the firm has a particular ‘cookie cutter’ style,” explains Mr. Disston. “I can tell you what others have said: our work has an intimate scale — our larger residences do not seem imposing, our interiors work well together and are exceptionally tailored in their material detail.”
