Wood Country Home with a Centrifugal Layout in New York

OBRA Architects had some circular logic for their stunning wood country home design in Southampton, New York. Among the grass and trees of this five-acre property, this wonderful wood clad house features an unusual floor plan with a hollow center, “as if the heart of the house had somehow fallen outside its body,” according to OBRA Architects. But that’s not to say this country home doesn’t have heart! A linear layout of living spaces leads you from one part of the home to the next, creating a sense of whole throughout the separate spaces. Adding interest to minimalist interiors, constantly shifting vanishing points create large openings in the roof for centrifugal views of the surrounding country. Inside, this unusual home’s shape creates atypical angles and architectural features that add an element of surprise around every corner. A minimalist loft area overlooks the main floor, further enhancing the already-striking sense of light and space. Beyond its unique architectural design, this eco house design also incorporates a number of sustainable technologies like geothermal heating, passive ventilation and natural lighting. OBRA Architects
