berg design architecture clads monroe drive house in montauk with wooden shingles

framing nearby ocean views, berg design architecture has designed the ‘monroe drive house’. set in montauk, new york, the property offers two levels of generous living space, a surrounding garden, decked outdoor patio and a private pool. the exterior utilizes contrasting textures and is infused with the same light color palette. predominantly wrapped with cedar shingles, the property sits harmoniously with its peacefully scenic surroundings. internally, the double-height and light filled rooms are connected by a floating staircase and finished with a refined and luxurious material palette.
