Quogue New Modern by Austin Patterson Disston Architects

Today, we’re excited to share a new modern summer house from the stunning portfolio of Austin Patterson Disston Architects. Located in Quogue, New York, with a view of the bay from its rooftop terrace, this modern home offers secluded outdoor spaces and interiors that are at once crisp, light-filled and completely captivating.

“I would not say that the firm has a particular ‘cookie cutter’ style,” explains Mr. Disston. “I can tell you what others have said: our work has an intimate scale — our larger residences do not seem imposing, our interiors work well together and are exceptionally tailored in their material detail.”

We think you’ll agree that this home is the embodiment of Mr. Disston’s statement above.

Meanwhile, the dining room offers lots of room at the long trestle table and an intimate sitting room complete with fireplace–a most appealing combination.

New Modern Kitchen

Nearby, modern white cabinetry meets warm wood and historic elements to create a highly functional, but totally irresistible heart of the home.

Modern Dining Room Fireplace

A closer look at the dining room fireplace reveals historic design that is quite unexpected but works brilliantly in this modern home.

Modern Bedroom

The blue and white color palette continues into the bedroom that also merges a variety of light and dark woods. The large contemporary rug ties the whole room together nicely.

Modern Bathroom

In the bath, light filters down from a large skylight into the spacious bathing area that includes a deep soaking tub and open shower.

Modern Rooftop Terrace

The rooftop terrace is at once secluded and open to the sky, while affording a lovely view of the bay.

Modern Patio and Pool

Floor to ceiling glass walls can be rolled back for seamless access to outdoor living spaces and the pool from the living room, kitchen and dining room.

A little girl’s room offers a warm colorful take on a distinctly retro look. No modern child’s bedroom is complete without the requisite elephant–this one is gray with pink-lined ears and resides happily on the top bunk.
