an all-white lake house

This stunning house, designed by Murdock Young Architects, is located on a lake in Montauk, New York. The home has white painted wood floors, walls, and ceilings to reflect light and accentuate the open spaces.

I especially love the painted white ceiling beams! The wooden dining table and benches give a bit of colour to the room.

The architects: “Designed to accommodate a growing family and close friends, this lake-front compound includes a 4,500-square-foot main house with 50-foot lap pool, an 1800-square-foot three-bedroom guest house, and a barn. An aggregate of smaller, informal living spaces carefully composed to disguise the bulk of the building and create a variety of views and experiences, each structure centers on a great room open to the northern water views and the southern sun and breezes.

The structures combine modern design with the local gabled vernacular of cedar shingles and white-painted wood: large expanses of glass, painted pine board walls, exposed structural trusses, gray-painted pine floors, and driftwood-clad storage elements that subdivide the interiors.”
