For the team at Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the design of this residence in East Quogue presented an unusual creative challenge that involved reinterpreting the historic regional shingle style the firm had helped revive in the region 30 years earlier. For the home, located on a dune overlooking Long Island’s South Shore, firm partner and lead architect on the project Gary Brewer created exterior elements, such as the arched openings and oceanside color scheme, that were carried inside the home with the interior architecture, also conceived by Brewer, and the decor scheme created by interior designer Steven Gambrel. Rather than feeling excessive, the shades of blue throughout the house give it rhythm and interest. The shingled house’s association with a casual way of summer living make it enduringly appealing.
