In 2017, William S. Leeds Architect P.C. completed an environmentally sensitive beach-house in Amagansett. The relationship to the natural surroundings and the architectural solution is of particular interest. Sea level rise is a growing concern as are environmental conditions on the coast. This bayside home between Gardiner's Bay and the Atlantic Ocean responds to these challenging conditions, the result being a unique structure well suited to the site.
