Orient Enclave

As is often the case on the North Fork, this home was essentially a complete renovation of an older bayfront more akin to the simple beach cottage style of the 40’s and 50’s than to today’s typically grandiose waterfronts. In this case, given zoning laws, the challenge lie in modernizing a structure that had fallen into considerable disrepair while still adhering to the building’s original footprint. Tasked with creating innovative interior spaces while avoiding the potentially ‘boxy’ feel dictated by preexisting conditions, we utilized dramatic angles and peaked drops to counter the rectangular footprint, and were able to create an exciting, eclectic modern interior space that balances well with the home’s exterior. A number of creative design solutions throughout the home’s interior — such as designing step-up closets in the second story to accommodate a high tray ceiling in the main floor dining room — enabled us to create an unexpectedly larger sense of space that transcended the project’s initial limitations.

Mark listened to our desires and delivered. He was helpful in having us think through the project and discuss changes that he would recommend. He was professional, easy to deal with and cared about his final work product.”
