Bridgehampton, NY

This 2-story single-family residence is wrapped in glass facades that are tucked under its cantilevered green roof. Engineered lumber beams and joists along with structural steel serve as the main structural elements of the house. Silman used wood and reinforced masonry shear walls, in tandem with three steel moment braced frames at the central living area, to resist the lateral wind loads experienced in coastal areas of Long Island.

The main residence is oriented in the shape of the letter “H”, where the central portion includes a column-free living room that allows light to pour in through the glass facades on two faces. A single stringer steel stair, made of a WT section and steel plates, serves to connect the residence’s two levels.

The tennis pavilion, constructed in a manner similar to the main residence, has more dramatic cantilevers achieved using W8 steel beams.

Silman worked closely with the architect to do detailing of both the main residence and tennis pavilion, ensuring that various architectural elements such as perimeter shade pockets were properly coordinated with the structure prior to the start of construction.
