Kings Point Residence

Kings Point, NY, US

Located on the northern peninsula of Great Neck, NY, this private residence rejects the typical siting of its neighbors, all of which are set far back from the road to create deep, formal lawns. Instead, this home prioritizes the rear yard and its arc-shaped footprint opens its arms, not only welcoming the 270-degree views of the water, but embracing and protecting the activities of the family both inside and out.

The house’s low, expansive massing, nestled within the natural topography, belies the generous programming which provides 10,000 sf of interior living space that extends seamlessly out to the surrounding landscape.
