*주말별장 [ Toshihiro Oki ] Bellport House

This weekend home, built on the south shore of Long Island, is envisioned as a social platform for the owner, his family and many friends and guests who come to visit and enjoy themselves outside of New York City. The Entry, Living, Dining and Kitchen are the central core where the social activity mixes. Large sliding glass doors open these areas out to the exterior, allowing people to flow easily between inside and outside. The pool, waterfront and various landscapes and courtyards around the house provide multiple settings for various activities.

There are five bedrooms each with their own bathroom, so guests can retreat and have their privacy when desired. The second floor bedroom also has a roof deck and views that provide a different perspective of the property and house from above. Expansive glass from floor to ceiling with glass doors provides uninterrupted views and access to outside from all the bedrooms. And each bedroom has its own unique view and experience of the landscape around the house.


The exterior walls are built with clay bricks that are robust against the salty ocean air and the freeze/thaw cycles of the cold damp Long Island winters. It also provides a thermal mass for more efficient heating and cooling. Glass is located at walls and skylights to give not just views but also even natural daylighting for active spaces. The psychological benefits of daylight help imbue character into each room, whether a bedroom, bathroom, corridor, living space or courtyard. Exterior overhead trellises and vegetation growing up cable walls provide stippled sunlight for a soft sheltering effect. These gradients of nuanced daylight across the house spread the spectrum broadly between direct sunlight and shadow.
