Robert Young Architects has shared photos of a home they designed in Hither Hills, a rolling topography of dunes between Montauk and Amagansett, New York, for a family that wanted a year-round retreat.

At the main entrance, the architects designed the house, which is clad in charred and natural cedar and glass, to look like it is a low-slung single-story pavilion, however once inside, the house opens to more expansive interior spaces, each with a different view of the ocean and the surrounding landscape.

Inside the home, like in the living room, there’s wood painted white that creates a casual environment suitable for the beach.

The open plan main social areas of the house transition from the living room with a fireplace, to a dining area, and then the kitchen. A sliding door connects the kitchen with the covered area outside.

One of the bedrooms also has a covered outdoor space, creating a private getaway with views of the garden and water in the distance.
