Eisner Design's East Hampton Home is Split Up by Function

This striking East Hampton home by Eisner Design branches off into two components that divide up the private and public spaces within the house. While the smaller wing contains the house's three bedrooms, the larger space has room for the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Armed with this information, even the shapes used on the exterior of the house seem to suggest that one is more open and the other is more closed off.

To protect each of these spaces, the design includes large metal roof panels that overhang slightly, helping to reduce heat gain and the structure's cooling costs. From the inside, the slanted roof is a noticeable element in the kitchen and living room.
