The Lakeside residence, completed in 2009, is situated in the hills of Montauk, a traditional fishing port and the most eastern village in Long Island. The 3,250 square foot home is designed to evoke the experience of camping, evidenced primarily by 36-foot-wide walls of retractable glass that allow the interior of the house and the yard to blend seamlessly. It is environmentally sensitive, with a geothermal heating and cooling system, organic finishes and materials, and pre-cast concrete foundation, which reduced waste and toxic chemicals in the ground.

“As children, the couple spent their summers in Montauk,” says Paul Masi, a partner in the Sag Harbor, Long Island-based firm.  “They wanted this house to be totally modern but to remind them of those happy times when they spent so much of day living outdoors.”

The competition for the Archi award is intense. The award recognizes outstanding architectural excellence for projects built on Long Island as well as projects designed by Long Island architects, built or planned anywhere else in the world.

The Archi is the 10th award Bates Masi + Architects has won since 2008.
