Stay Awhile in This Picture Perfect Guesthouse by the Beach
2023 Best of Year Winner for Small Beach House
The archetypal Long Island beach house is a grand, shingled affair—which basically describes this compound’s main structure and complementary 1,500-square-foot surf “shack” in Sagaponack, New York. But a new guesthouse designed by Roger Ferris + Partners in the property’s idyllic mise-en-scène strikes another note entirely. The cantilevered L-shape monolith, encompassing three levels (one below-grade), is clad in glossy rose-toned metal paneling that dialogues with the adjacent pool’s same-hued solid-surface surround. The interior of the structure, though a compact 1,400 square feet, contains a kitchenette on the ground level and sleeping quarters in the second-floor cantilever. A basement-level open-plan space serves as a gallery and painting studio, illuminated by a mirror-enclosed light well. As for the pale pink coloration, it was chosen to reflect the sky’s tones at dawn and dusk.
