A Modernist Masterpiece by Gwathmey in the Hamptons

This house was only the third designed by Charles Gwathmey, right after the famous residence he designed for his parents in Amagansett. It was commissioned by graphic artist Joe Sedacca back in 1968, who told the architect he wanted only two bedrooms and a wonderful kitchen. The small footprint of the house—just 1200 square feet—contains some very intricate spaces, however. The current owner, Paul Amador, was quoted in the New York Times in 1993 when he bought the house from Mr. Sedacca: "I feel like I won the lottery. I'm buying a piece of art for the cost of the raw materials."
