Marvel Architects have just completed an outstanding project in Long Island‘s Peconic Bay. Take a look at this amazing cedar-clad retreat right in the heart of the Hamptons, in New York.
This Hamptons‘ residence is notable for both its exterior and interior. Besides an infinity pool, you can also get a view over Peconic Bay from the driveway.
Destined to be a weekend residence, this three-bedroom Red Creek Road is located in the popular vacation town of Southampton. The house faces Peconic Bay, a short distance inland from the Atlantic Ocean.
The residence’s geometric shape frames unique views of the water and surrounding landscapes. Another thing that makes this Marvel Architects‘ stand out are the stunning views over The Great Peconic Bay and the forest, which provides dramatic changes in light and shade throughout the day.
In plan, the home comprises two volumes that intersect at an angle. Where they meet, the architects created an opening on the ground level that forms a passage towards the back of the property and frames views of the landscape.

Another great feature achieved by Marvel Architects is the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room. Since the upper floor only occupies part of the home, the living room is double-height.
Floor-to-ceiling windows are a must and this residence couldn’t be an exception. They provide expansive views of the bay. The back terrace features an infinity pool, which creates the illusion of a continuous water surface stretching towards the horizon.
A monumental board-formed concrete fireplace separates the living room from the kitchen and dining area but is open to both sides. It also extends upstairs, providing a hearth in the master bedroom.
The master suite enjoys a private terrace which overlooks the backyard, a walk-in closet, and a private bathroom.
The other wing of the home includes two other bedrooms separated by a bathroom.
Marvel Architects stuck to a muted palette throughout the home. It allowed building elements such as the exposed wooden structure and concrete fireplace to stand out. Colorful accents are brought in with bright furnishings, rugs, and wall art.
According to Marvel Architects‘ studio, the house is wrapped in natural cedar cladding, a modern ode to its natural surroundings.
In close proximity to New York City, the beach communities of the Hamptons are sought-after destinations for luxury second homes, which means it isn’t hard to find gems like this one.
