Spring is high time to think about a summer vacation and your country or beach home décor. Here’s a great inspiration: tiny, two-story Beach Hampton house with just a 15′ x 20′ footprint designed by Bates + Masi Architects. It displays slight shifts in geometry, helping to make the most of natural light while maintaining the tight footprint. By expanding the volume towards the top, the interior feels larger and it makes way for an interior light well that brings light to the ground floor. Large expanses of glass give the interior a completely open feel to enjoy the view. Privacy shades can be lowered between the spaces, which are also acoustically divided. Each room has its own mechanical unit, making it more energy efficient, but also eliminating the need for floor and roof ductwork.
