Developed in a partnership with IMAESTRI, an international luxury home developer, the Hamptons Adaptive Universal System (HAUS) is a design that can be quickly tailored to fit the needs of the discerning buyer in the semi custom home market. Using the system, four homes would be planned on the site with one home developed and rendered in more detail as a proof of concept.
Governed by the common design approach of a strong cross axis of load bearing walls to separate the living and sleeping areas in spiral arms, they divide areas of the site to be incorporated as extensions of the adjacent space. Each home is unique yet inherits known quantities from carefully defined materials and components, and benefits from per-engineered cost savings by reducing certain design variables.
In a heavily iterative design development process I worked fluidly between, plans, sketches, sections, and 3D model. I worked with the design team to develop details that would be applicable to as many conditions as possible to reduce the amount of custom design work later on. We delivered a package of illustrative plan drawings and various photo renderings to our client for their marketing materials.
Marketed as summer vacation residences, the goal was to convey an uncomplicated seamless living experience for recreation, relaxation, and entertaining guests. The load bearing walls afforded expansive views with floor surfaces that run visually uninterrupted between spaces, and to help create a seamless transition between indoors and out, large floor to ceiling sliding glass windows expand interior spaces to adjacent exterior yards.
