Southampton Village, New York
The Gin Lane Residence is located on one of the nation’s most historic oceanfront streets. With the house in need of a large-scale renovation, an opportunity developed to re-design the property’s overgrown and outdated landscape. In keeping with the owner’s request for an active landscape inspired by a contemporary aesthetic, the master plan incorporates a golf complex and sunken tennis court, as well as a rim-flow pool and spa on the ocean side of the house. A new boardwalk bridges the main living areas and Atlantic Ocean to the south. At the front entrance, a formal courtyard planted with small crape myrtle trees serves as a veil for the building’s two story elevation.
