Daniel’s Lane Residence by Blaze Makoid Architecture

Daniel’s Lane Residence by Blaze Makoid Architecture | Breathtaking Architecture | Scoop.it

The residence Blaze Makoid Architecture created for a father with three children in Sagaponack on the Eastern Shore of Long Island was inspired by the iconic architect Norman Jaffe’s Perlbinder House(1970) and Tod Williams’ Tarlo House (1979) but with his and his firm’s signature of designing residences that have a quiet elegance that are uniquely suited to each client. As in all of Makoid’s work, there is a cohesiveness that unites the architecture with its interiors and the site. The lines between indoors and out blur as they become the greater part of the whole.
