Roger Ferris + Partners LLC, from their Studio X division, designed the modern and environmentally conscious Bay House in Sag Harbor, NY. This single-family home capitalizes on its Long Island coastline location with environmentally integrated systems and gorgeous bay views. The residence is the ultimate in sustainability with a geothermal heating and cooling system, passive solar design (which maximizes solar lighting and shading) and xeriscape landscaping. It features a total of 6,400-square-feet of living space with five bedrooms and an open plan kitchen, dining and living space, a separate family room and other utility spaces. There is also a pool house that contains a study bathroom and office space, which is connected to the main home via a wooden deck. This attached pool house and deck area also create a wonderful sheltered outdoor living space that is protected from any strong breezes that may come off the bay. There are also separate guest quarters, which are disconnected from the main home and located above the garage. All of these features coupled with fabulous modern design and that view. Paradise, within commuting distance to NYC, is found.
Both the Northern and Southern facades of this home are almost 100% glazing giving the home a sense of transparency between the interior and exterior spaces. Privacy is provided by the fixed aluminum louvers on the exterior of the windows, the landscaping that surrounds the property and the
There is a beautiful floating wood and glass staircase leading to the upper and lower levels of the home. The interior is airy and minimally furnished leaving room to appreciate each distinct feature and the easy flow of the home.
