HAMPTONS STYLE ARCHITECTURE
True “Hamptons Style” architecture is a mix of traditional American design with rustic early settler utilitarian elements. Many of the original design elements were put in place to combat against harsh coastal winds and humid weather. Iconic features that define this style are: a gable style roof with shingles, large balconies, windows that are well positioned and spaced, a hint at the hierarchy of rooms, simple lines, and symmetry.
