On the Boards: Mecox Guest House
Swis.Loc is pleased to announce our collaboration with Oliver Freundlich Design, a founding partner of MADE LLC, on a new Guest House in Bridgehampton, NY.
The conversion of an existing artist’s studio into a guest house will be one of several improvements to be made to the property, which was renovated in 2001 by Gluckman Mayner Architects and has been published several times since. The two acre property is situated between agrarian farms to the south and a horse farm to the north and gently slopes down toward a pond on the east side of the main house.
The client, a landscape historian and ardent gardner, has carefully cultivated the grounds and feel of the property over the last 30 years with many plants on the property still flourishing since those early years. Swis.Loc and OFD’s charge is to insert a structure that creates new living spaces for grandkids and guests, while maintaining focus on the understated main house and potager, the centerpiece and most cherished element of the property’s landscape.
