East Hampton, NY | 5,038 sq ft. | 2013
Originally from the Midwest, the clients purchased a traditional builders home in East Hampton for weekends away from their new residence in NYC. Principal Robin Osler’s father, Architect David Osler, had designed two houses for them in Michigan and Ohio. They contacted Robin wanting to keep the family architectural vision in place. The renovation focused on creating an open and warm modern home with careful consideration given to the display of their marvelous collection of hand turned wooden and ceramic bowls. EOA removed the original columned portico and reshaped the large double height interior hall to create a crisp, clean entry. A custom designed display cabinet seen upon entering showcases their collection of bowls and screens the dining area from public view. A new modern kitchen, study, laundry, master suite and stair to the second level, coupled with precisely integrated flashes of color, transformed the house into a unique and personal home. The owners extended their connection to the Osler family by hiring Interior Designer Molly Osler to fill the spaces with specially selected furniture and fabrics, giving the house a distinctive and singular texture.
