“Lee Mindel’s house in the Hamptons is not only a beautifully designed structure that fits its context, it is also a highly inventive and even a serious house from an architectural point of view,” observes contributing writer Joseph Giovannini.  “Mindel and his colleague

Reed Morrison have synthesized several architectural traditions and established a bridge from those traditions to Modernist architects who, with a similar design philosophy, created furniture.  So from top to bottom, from site to armchair, Mindel and Morrison have created a philosophically seamless design that is a fused whole rather than a sum of its parts,” he adds.  “You really understand the sweeping breadth of 100 years of Modernism in this house. 

This is an important building.”
