Join the AIANY Interiors Committee in Amagansett, NY for the Annual Hamptons Tour. This year’s tour will take participants to Wuehrer house, designed by Jerome Engelking and built in 2018.
Located on an expansive and secluded site, the Wuehrer house is surrounded by nature preserves. The site is gently sloped, covered almost exclusively with white oaks, a few eastern red cedars, and an occasional pitch pine. To celebrate this serene location, the design of the house mutes architectural metaphors, avoids overt symbolism, and conceives of a contemplative structure that is simple, discreet, rational, and generously open to the surrounding landscape.
The Wuehrer House draws on and extends the tradition of modernism in the Hamptons with a contemporary design vocabulary that frames and celebrates its surroundings.
