The Qual Hill House by Bates Masi ArchitectsNovember 18th, 2011 - Posted in House Ideas
We show another projects by Base Masi Architects, this house called Qual Hill House. The gabled form, massive chimney, and shingled siding are all reminiscent of traditional houses on eastern Long Island. The double-height living/dining room is a compatible scale and space for the large works of art and family gatherings. The fireplace surround reflects fragmented images of the art and surrounding landscape while its crystalline appearance defies its humble origins: polished stainless steel military dog tags. Behind the stake siding and interior gypsum board are walls comprised of precast concrete panels typically used in foundation construction. These durable and low maintenance panels are double insulated for efficiency and are a perfect scale for hanging large art. By staggering the walls slightly, tall, narrow windows admit indirect light and allow glimpses of the landscape.
