This weekend home sits on the dunes in Amagansett, New York. The original home's facade allowed a glut of sunshine in that kept the house hot (Image 5). The renovation by Sag Harbor-based Bates Masi Architects addressed this in addition to size and spacial flow issues in their design.

The original house had a chopped up appearance — by filling in the gaps, Bates Masi Architects was able to add space and modern amenities to the existing home on a restricted lot.

To help ease the heat of the sun — without completing erasing the view — the architects designed a screen of bentwood planks and steel that would also function as a the home's new facade.
