Sag Harbor Revival
Sag Harbor, New York
A sensitive renovation for a wonderful greek revival house that would be “as much at home in Greenwich Village as in Sag Harbor”, according to the AIA Architectural Guide. Built around 1840, this masonry structure belonged to the owner of the the local rope walk (a factory that spun cables and rigging for ships).
We explored sensitive changes to the interior layout and exterior form to make it more functional for today’s needs, while respecting the original structure, which is largely intact.
We explored a glazed den/bar under the porch for more direct access to the pool, changes to the kitchen, a hidden "crow's nest" for views, and transforming the attic into usable space, while meeting code requirements for egress. Drawings were approved by Sag Harbor's Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review and Building Department.
