From the outside, Bates + Masi Architects‘ Elizabeth II development looks like your average modern home, but located in the East Hamptons, New York, the building’s simple frontage masks a very clever design. A bustling resort area, the windowless exterior masks a concrete walls nearly 20 inches thick, build to provide excellent sound insulation from the noise of nearby Amagansett. Inside, the home feels bright and spacious thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows facing the rear garden and swimming pool, particularly the open plan kitchen-living space where the entire wall can be folded back.
