This beautiful L-Shaped House Design Ideas was done by Michael Haverland Architects

The program for this house and the 20-acre site were analyzed and developed as a “Campus“. Rather than one large suburban object on the site, parts of the house are separated and arranged to respect the gently sloping natural topography and define a series of courtyards and outdoor gardens that contribute to a feeling of an oasis carved out of the forest.

Integrated Pool Living Space

The “campus” of structures, including the pool house and spa, extend into the landscape, draw eyes across the property, and define outdoor rooms with articulated gardens.

The program for the over 10,000 square foot compound includes eight bedrooms, a large loft-like living/dining/kitchen/bar area, two TV/family rooms, a screening room, gym, 25-meter pool, pool house, spa and tennis court.

It is a villa of glass, steel, mahogany, and stucco, grand and sumptuous, its various wings sited with precision.


“The large, L-shaped main house and its accompanying pool house, exercise pavilion, and garage have echoes of Frank Lloyd Wright, of the American industrial vernacular, and of European modernism, all woven together into something that is not quite like any of these things but is very much Haverland’s own.”

Paul Goldberger, in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens, August 2016.
