It must be hard to come up with a design to complement an existing log house, but Ryall Porter Sheridan succeeded with their Spanish cedar-clad Hamptons Pavilion. Interestingly, this material is neither Spanish nor cedar, but rather from an evergreen tree in the mahogany family. It’s also the traditional material used for making cigar boxes. But despite its confusing moniker, the paneling creates a structure that is both modern and organically connected to the surrounding landscape.
The Hamptons Pavilion has living and dining areas surrounded by smooth Spanish cedar walls and ceilings. Large sliding windows lead to the existing pool and lush landscape. The deceptively spacious addition provides a nice contrast to the intimate rooms in the rough-hewn original structure, while mimicking the log house’s warm palette and gabled roof.
Designed for entertaining, this addition also serves as a minimal yet elegant backdrop for the client’s collection of fine and decorative art. Period furniture stands out against the sleek wood walls and modern, built-in shelving. Like this design? See more from Ryall Porter Sheridan on 6sqft.
