36SML House, a new project completed by NYC-based studio Levenbetts on the Long Island hamlet of Amagansett, rejects the traditional suburban standard of front and backyards in favor of something radically radial. The house, which spins out from a central axis, takes the form of three connected wings that split up the sleeping quarters for parents, children, and guests on the interior. The three spokes simultaneously demarcate three different outdoor spaces: parking for vehicles, a vegetable garden, and a pool area. A driveway cuts through one wing of the house, separating the garage from the main living space.

Outer walls of the house are clad in panels of pale grey cement, which, according to Dezeen, is a nod to the "mottled tones of the nearby beach." The interior features a mix of board-marked concrete, white oak, glass glazing, perforated aluminum screens, and exposed steel trusses and cross-bracing. There's also a generous basement "bunk room" with its own lounge and outdoor terrace.
