When a couple in Bridgehampton decided to build a guesthouse for friends visiting from New York City, they looked to their past for architectural inspiration. Both had grown up in the Midwest, and they agreed that a modern farmhouse would best represent their fond memories of roaming the countryside. Bringing this nostalgic wish to life would've been challenging enough for architect Tim Dumbleton of TADA, but the pair had a second difficult request, too: they wanted to build the dream quickly. With only a few months to plan, prepare, and execute the construction, Dumbleton created a design that gives the impression that the home has stood for some time. Reclaimed materials — like wood from a Brooklyn factory — provide that sense of timelessness, while an abundance of windows open to views of the outdoors. "We started the design in December, and the couple moved into the guesthouse the following July, " Dumbleton said. With a home like this, it's no wonder the two were so eager to make their past part of the present.
