Mention mid-century architecture and images of boxy low slung houses with flat roofs spring to mind. There are, surprisingly, many joyous and exuberant mid-century buildings waiting to be rediscovered. The Antler House in East Hampton is one such gem.
Designed by architect Andrew Geller in 1968 and recently restored by Architecture AF, this delightfully whimsical house is everything you want from a beach vacation house and nothing like the cookie-cutter mansions which line this popular stretch of the Hamptons.
Much of the work involved stripping back additions made over the years and restoring original features such as the quirky "owl's eye" windows and the cedar cladding. In addition, Architecture AF added a garage with a terrace on top, the latter accessed by an open staircase shielded by a triangular screen, a design feature which neatly echoes the theatrical roof.
The result is a deliciously charming house that raises the spirits without fail. It is no wonder that Geller is sometimes known as the "architect of happiness", and Architecture AF has certainly done him proud.
