From Margaret on November 1st, 2010 in General Remodel
If you perused the October issue of Architectural Digest, then you couldn’t have missed this brightly illuminated, wildly innovative home by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat.
This design wonder on New York‘s Shelter Island appears to be much larger than its modest 1,100 square feet. The two architects wanted a two-volume home while using something more fluid than glass, something “not deconstructed.” After a visit to Mies van der Rohe’s Pavillion in Barcelona, the quite unusual floor plan started to take shape.

Even more anomalous are the details that complete the home—the parallelogram planes situated as the open outer walls, the interior structures and style choices, the bright pastel colors.
Innovative and certainly not something you’re likely to see elsewhere, this home that seems to come straight out of a shared Andy Warhol/Frank Lloyd Wright dream definitely grabs our attention.
What do you think? Too wacky or just the right amount of crazy?
