It wouldn’t be a true Hamptons holiday house without an extensive guest retreat for when family and friends come to stay. Although the guest house was part of the original home, Vanessa explains there was a lack of flow, and it felt removed from the main house. As a result, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom guest house now has the same creamy, neutral tones and textures as the rest of the home, creating a seamless union between both spaces.
Vanessa and Resolution: 4 Architecture ‘activated’ the external courtyard between the home and the guest house overlooking the North Atlantic ocean, introducing a large outdoor kitchen, outdoor seating area and fire pit. “A lot of the activity now takes place in this elevated area – it serves as a bridge between both built parts and offers the perfect place to come and eat and relax together,” Vanessa says.
