Unique Six Square House designed by Young Projects as a contemporary counterpart to the property’s farmhouse, which the client had outgrown. The architect set out to create a new residence that nods subtly to the historic architecture of Long Island, while radically reimagining a traditional barn typology as an elegant, innovative home. With a playful fusion of gabled geometries, Young Projects designs its unique Six Square House. The house occupies a large and verdant site in Bridgehampton, New York and presents a contemporary, design minded interpretation of the traditional American house.

The 3,500 square foot house contains 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, living spaces, an outdoor porch and garage. Living spaces open directly onto a landscape designed for entertaining: central court, meadow and pool house. Besides, the kitchen located at the center of the house, is adjacent to a “left-over” triangular court and looks through the open porch that frames views of landscape beyond. Living spaces and kitchen linked to one another to serve as a large open space emphasizing the flow of continuous ruled ceiling geometry. While bedrooms feature framed views of the site’s mature and gnarled trees for privacy. In addition to this, standing in the middle of the site, one can glimpse archetypal gables silhouetted against the undulating roof geometries. It emphasizes the evolution of the typology in a layering of forms. Overall, the unique Six Square House strikes an elegant, innovative balance across both interiors and exteriors.

The six volumes are skilfully wrapped in a skin of charred Accoya timber. A dark slatted façade that contrasts perfectly with the bright Western red cedar of the central courtyard’s entertaining space.
The deep grey rain screen facade is striking. The slatted roof aligns with slatted exterior walls to create long, vertical striations that begin at the roof ridge and cascade to the ground. Moreover, roof and exterior walls constructed from the same material. It is charred, stained, and sealed Accoya rain-screen and Western Red Cedar rainscreen.

The tessellated arrangement also creates strategic programmatic divisions across the home. As a result, each module loosely tied to a different use: living, kitchen, main bedroom, secondary bedroom, porch, and garage, all which encircle the triangular courtyard. Additionally, this layout takes advantage of the surrounding landscape, with each module offering a different view of the lush property.

The simple exterior materials highlight the dynamic roof geometry from various viewpoints around the site. Then, the roof composition translates to the house’s interior and naturally delineates 6 distinct programs.

The living room volume and its corner window look out onto an oak tree as the diagonal ridgeline directs your eyes towards the farmhouse.

Material selections and their corresponding color palette follow a neutral, organic spectrum, codified by a given space’s use.
Finally, the interior sheathed in alabasters and whites: walls and ceilings are gypsum plaster, Flooring and millwork is white oak and ash. Countertops and selected shelving are light marble.

The Six Square House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The residence is made up of six 24’x24’ gabled modules, arranged to align roof ridges and create continuity from one module to the next. In contrast, each module’s roof eaves flow upward and downward, which result in a variety of undulating surfaces and unexpected sightlines across the exterior and interior of the home. The home is clad in deep gray, slatted Accoya wood, whose striations enhance the roofscape’s dynamic edges and arcs.
