Let’s shake off our winter blues by delving into this this stunning two-level home located just steps away from the sea. The Shore House, designed by Bridgehampton-based Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, is an elegant weekend retreat located in Amagansett in the Hamptons. Though the structure is very modern in form, according to the architects it was actually designed to bring up memories of summer camp at the beach. Was your summer camp anything like this?

The aim of the architects was to build a house that was modest in size but comfortable enough for a family of four. Every design decision, from the materials to the massing, was made to keep the overall volume compact.

The design mixes a palette of wood and concrete, and its blocky form is accented and lightened by sliding horizontal louvers that also filter excess sun. At ground level, these louvers create a translucent boundary with the exterior, providing a sheltered and shady patio area for the residents to enjoy. Conversely, at the second level, the master bedroom enjoys a balcony/terrace that’s set up atop the living room’s roof for a more open feel.
