Mamaroneck House

SPG Architects as Architects

Sitting on a wooded Westchester County site, this 5500 SF house consists of a large kitchen, dining and living rooms, a study, a large master suite, a family room, and four additional bedrooms.  The 3000 SF conditioned basement incorporates a children’s play area, a media center, and a small gym.  A 3-car garage rounds out the program. The formally composed street facade presents itself frontally to street but addresses the driveway with a dynamic entrance canopy.  The rear façade is animated with more dynamic relationships between indoor and outdoor living spaces.  This side of the house is defined by a double-volume transparent cube and several more solid volumes that provide a more ambiguous relationship between indoors and out.  A free-standing dining pavilion further blurs this distinction. The house is rendered in a minimal architectural vocabulary of stucco, wood screens & cladding, grey tiles & plaster, stainless steel, and walnut floors & millwork. Natural light and shadow are purposefully manipulated with the large planar openings, while the exterior façade is dappled and softened by tree-filtered daylight.
