The Sagaponac House is a 4,500 square foot house at an east Long Island community, Wainscott, NY is master-planned by Richard Meier. It consists only of simple lines and shapes but firmly rooting itself to the landscape and creating privacy by shaping the terrain. Even though the site was nearly flat before the construction, architects has managed to establish the first level slightly below grade and sculpt the surrounding terrain into a gentle rise. That allowed the visible volume to be reduced and gave place for creating indoor/outdoor spaces that are very open to their surroundings. After the construction the house become a great place for an intimate retreat for a family and even their friends. The private areas with amazing outdoor swimming pool are located the way nobody could see them from the street. { TsAO & McKOWN }

In fact, the architects willingly modified the almost flat land in order to give the livable cube a more appealing shape. Here is some more information from the architects: “The primary challenge was to design for the needs of a yet-to-be-determined client.
