Wainscott Residence

Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership

Situated on an estuary close to the ocean in Wainscott, NY, this home and studio compound of a renowned artist is comprised of a main house with attached guest wing, a free-standing sculpture studio and kiln, a pool and cabana with shade pavilion, and a variety of outdoor areas for dining, entertaining and being in nature.

Set amidst a unique landscape of indigenous grasses and other plantings, the home exudes a casual elegance and a Zen-like calm. The architectural forms are modest, reflecting the influences of local farmhouses and Japanese design and the interiors facilitate indoor-outdoor enjoyment. Framed views of the landscape inspire a deep appreciation for the timeless quality of nature.
