SAGAPONAC HOUSE - Long Island, USA, 2006

The Sagaponac House is based on the plan of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s unbuilt Brick Country House (1924), reinterpreted according to program, structure and site. An improved version of the prefabricated Furniture House system was employed. The corners are reinforced with triangular plywood pieces to bear horizontal and vertical loads and to prevent buckling.
