Peconic House / Mapos

The Hamptons enjoys a storied past. Unique daylight and compelling landscapes have drawn artists to this part of Long Island?s South Fork for the last century and a half, and their work here includes an important body of modernist fine art and architecture. Yet more recently, the Hamptons? allure has outsized its capacity?sprouting insensitive residential development, snarled traffic, and a national reputation for showing off. When a longtime Mapos client asked us to consider creating a multi-generational family retreat overlooking the Peconic Bay, we initiated dialogue about preserving the Hamptons? historic character while accommodating the scale and refinement of 21st-century living.
