Houses

Hamptons Home

On a bucolic Hamptons property, architect Deborah Berke and designer Thomas O’Brien ingeniously reimagine an inviting family getaway. A Bridgehampton, New York, house devised by the architecture firm Deborah Berke Partners, with interior designer Thomas O’Brien of Aero Studios, nestles into serene gardens by Gunn Landscape Architecture.

A large Richard Prince artwork surveys the living room, which also includes a pair of club chairs (clad in a Great Plains fabric) and a Jonas sofa facing a George Nakashima cocktail table; the rug is a Thomas O’Brien design for Safavieh.

In a corner of the living room, a Louise Bourgeois work hangs next to a Carlo Mollino table hosting an O’Brien lamp from Aero and an Isamu Noguchi standing sculpture.

The dining room’s circa-1963 Arteluce pendant light is from Bernd Goeckler Antiques, and the table and chairs are vintage Hans J. Wegner; atop the midcentury sideboard from Aero is a Harry Bertoia sculpture.

A Laura Resen photograph is propped next to the kitchen’s wall clock, both from Aero.

Aero Studios created the oak cabinetry in the kitchen; the billiard light is a Thomas O’Brien design from Aero, the range and hood are by Wolf, and the barstools are by Soane Britain.

Kantan lounge chairs are positioned alongside the pool.

Astilbe, peonies, and salvia bloom in the garden.

A table is set for alfresco dining.

Thomas O’Brien pendant lights from Aero join an Alexandre Noll sculpture (far end) and a Donald Baechler painting (right) in the entrance hall; an Alexander Calder lithograph is mounted at the bottom of the staircase.

Antique Japanese stencils are displayed with a vintage stool and chest in a guest room; all are from Aero.

The master bath’s vanity was custom made by Aero Studios.

Thomas O’Brien designed the bed in the master suite, upholstering the headboard in a Donghia fabric and using a Christopher Farr Cloth textile for the coverlet. At the foot of the bed is a vintage André Borderie table, while the circa-1945 armchair is attributed to Mogens Lassen; the ’60s French floor lamp is from ReGeneration, and the carpet is by Crosby Street Studios.
