The American Institute of Architects' Long Island Chapter announced at their annual gala yesterday evening that the House in East Quogue is the winner of a 2017 Archi Award Commendation. RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern
and Gary L. Brewer
led the design effort. S.R. Gambrel, Inc. served as the interior designer.
The Residence in East Quogue is a Shingle-style house on a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean offers sweeping views of the water from all major rooms. The gambrel roof, gray-stained fancy cut shingles, slender Doric columns at the porches, and blue shutters recall earlier shingled Dutch Revival houses typical of Eastern Long Island. The open plan organizes the living room, dining room, and library around a central hall; a living room porch and circular dining porch allow for beachfront entertaining. Elegant proportions, beadboard ceilings, and antique wood floors make for distinguished yet casual interior spaces for summer living. The double-height family room opens to a lap pool with two cabanas. A clay tennis court nestled into the landscape is concealed from the long entry drive and house.
