Watermill Residence named a Finalist in Interior Design’s Best Of Year Awards

This new residence in Watermill was named a finalist in Interior Design’s Best of Year Awards #boy2015

The 5,000 sf home is sited on a prime location in Water Mill, south of the highway with partial water views of Mecox Bay.  As a weekend home, it’s designed for casual Hamptons living with family and friends.  The design developed through a creative alliance between Architect Cass Calder Smith, Principal of CCS Architecture, and Designer Sharon Bonnemazou, Principal of Mode SB, who is also the homeowner with her husband.

CCS and MODE Interior Designs win HC&G Bath Design Award

The 2015 Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards – Bath Design

Even though the owner and designer of this Water Mill bath, Mode SB’s principal, is married with young children, she wanted the room to have a masculine tone, while also being luxurious and discreet. The most compelling detail, and one that every judge made note of, is the hovering double vanity, illuminated from below. While acknowledging the bathroom’s “masculine appeal,” judge Kim Seybert enthuses that “a woman would still feel comfortable using it!”

Eating and Drinking our way through The Hamptons

For those of you living on the East Coast, you know that August can be a busy time in the Hamptons. CCS decided to brave the crowds and take a little field trip to visit some of our clients. Here are some of the highlights from our culinary tour.

Townline BBQ

First stop was at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack. This has always been one of our favorite spots – the pulled pork sandwich alone is worth the drive. CCS designed this roadside BBQ joint back in 2007, and it’s been a classic ever since. The ultra-casual design, which relates to the classic BBQ joints found in the South, creates a functional, modern “dive” for on-site dining and take-out.

The renovated building is clad in reclaimed lumber siding and has a galvanized metal roof. The casual, friendly interior makes a great roadside pit-stop to fuel up on your way to the beach.

Nick + Toni’s

Next up was dinner at the newly completed renovation at Nick+Toni’s in East Hampton. CCS completed a complete renovation of the interior, just in time for their 25th anniversary.

In usual Friday night fashion, the place was packed – but owner, Mark Smith, gave us one of the best seats in the house, out on the front patio. A beautiful summer evening with friends, we had an extraordinary meal that we are still talking about. You can easily see how this has become one of the areas most talked about restaurants . (See article in the New York Times)

Saturday was spent at the beach in East Hampton, getting some well deserved R&R before heading out for one last night on the town.

Meeting House

Last but not least was a quick stop in Amagansett to pay a visit to Meeting House. Located right on Amagansett Square, Meeting House is the true definition of “Hamptons style beach casual”.  Absolutely the best way to spend the afternoon catching up with friends, shopping and enjoying some great food & drink. Meeting House was  actually the first Hamptons restaurant CCS Architecture’s New York studio designed back in 2006, and is always a pleasure to come back to visit.

The Amagansett Square is a quaint, cozy, outdoor shopping area nestled in the heart of Amagansett.

Sunday night it was back to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, this time feeling energized. Amazing how only 2 days in a place just 2-3 hours outside the city can make you feel a world away.
