my family home....

I grew up in an international style house built in the 1930's in New York City for an exhibition on  innovations in residential architecture, which was moved to Long Island by the architect/builder for his own use.  It was a minimalist's dream with interesting design solutions, which were modified as the years went by.  Originally the architect's weekend house, it evolved into a family home with 7 children, assorted pets and a very  casual lifestyle!  It was part of a group of houses in the area which were examples of the newest building trends in modular housing, passive solar heating, and high tech materials for the time.  I was excited to see it featured in Caroline Zaleski's new book on Long Island Modernism.  One day I would like to restore it to its former pure the meantime, I'll enjoy seeing the architect's vision in the pages of her book!

  1. Wow, Trish - this is a beautiful home. I knew you lived on the water but I didn't realize your home was a modern treasure like this. I can't wait to get a look at this book too.
    Thanks for posting.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and all.
