Architect Visit: Alex Scott Porter in Amagansett

Issue 33 · Blue Notes · August 18, 2009

There's a lot to like about this barn-like house in Amagansett designed by New York architect Alex Scott Porter, starting with the salvaged timber used throughout the project and the seamless indoor/outdoor feel. After graduating from Columbia's School of Architecture, Porter worked at the New Jersey Barn Company, disassembling antique timber-frame barns and designing reassembled structures; later she worked for the Polshek Partnership and for Francois de Menil. She commissioned pieces from Jim Zivic Design for the project, including the leather link hammock, and a glass bubble chandelier from Lindsey Adelman.
