House in the Dunes

Worrell Yeung Architecture as Architects

Worrell Yeung completed a full gut renovation and restoration of a seminal Charles Gwathmey house (originally the Haupt Residence) from the 1970’s in Amagansett, New York. The project carefully implemented upgrades and subtle modifications to create a more functional and useful home to meet the needs of the new owner. The exterior scope of the project included a full replacement of the building envelope including the roof, cedar siding, doors and windows, skylights, and pool deck—all designed and detailed to preserve the essence of the original design. The interior scope involved a considered rethinking of the kitchen area to create more openness and connection to the adjacent living spaces and outdoor pool deck. The footprint of the kitchen is the same but elements and materials were reinterpreted, inspired by the original elements throughout the house.
