The problem with new houses is that sometimes they look too, well, new. I like the clean lines of Modernism as well as the marks of time that give old buildings their character and integrity, which is why this house in East Hampton, New York (via Arch Daily), is so appealing. It’s actually a refurbishment, but architects Bates Masi returned to the house they created 35 years ago to refresh, reconsider and redesign. The weathered cypress boards on the exterior are original, and inside, external decking has been used for new sidings and staircases, meaning that it doesn’t feel quite so raw as if it was new. Wonder what they’ll do in another 35 years?
