Houses at Sagaponac, 11 Years Later
Next week there will be much more on this topic in an article I wrote for Houzz, but here are some photos and information I put together from a recent drive out to the Hamptons, seeing the Houses at Sagaponac development. When first announced in 2001 by developer Harry "Coco" Brown and architect Richard Meier, the plan included 32 modern houses on 70 acres on the east end of Long Island. Eleven years later—seven years after the death of Coco Brown and four years after the economic crisis—only eight houses have been completed; those are featured below. That will probably be the limit, as while the project is moving forward, it's doing so in a very different form.
