You can't swing a dead cat in the Hamptons without hitting some sort of shingle-style house with white trim and gambrels, which is why Shelter Island's Maison Plastique has consistently captured the attention of architecture and design junkies (not to mention Curbed Hamptons editors and Architectural Digest). Designed (and owned) by architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat, the rubber-roofed creation is a colorful take on Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion, but rendered in bright colors inspired by the works of Matisse, Hockney, and famed Mexican architect Luis Barragán. Filled with furniture by Saarinen, Breuer, Castiglione, Bertoia, and more, Maison Plastique seems perennially on the rental market: this summer it's asking $14K a month (or $19K a month in the ever-desirable August).
Recently AOL Real Estate filmed a video tour of the property; watch below.
