Roman and Williams: Montauk
I came across these photos of Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams Montauk weekend house on NYTimes.com. I basically stay up on their website just looking at the work they've done over and over and over, so I was excited to see new photos of work I have already seen. Not only is their weekend house incredible but it's in one of my favorite places on earth. Growing up on LI I spent a lot of time out in Montauk. Some of my best childhood memories are of friends and I surfing out in front of the East Deck in at Ditch Plains. Montauk is a special place, it's much more laid back and less pretentious than the Hamptons. It is also less seasonal, with tons of fishermen, mostly Irish immigrants holding down Montauk all year round.
