I’ve long been captivated by traditional American architecture, particularly those faded shingled beauties that dominate places like the Hamptons, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod. It’s a style of architecture that is uniquely American (particularly on the east coast) and rarely seen in many other parts of the world.
Which leads me to one of my favourite architects, Frank Greenwald, who does this traditional style of architecture better than anyone. Based in East Hampton, Frank has designed some of America’s most beautiful homes, including two homes for Ralph Lauren, as well as the much publicised East Hampton ‘Barn’ of celebrity chef, Ina Garten. This is when I first heard about Frank Greenwald and it’s fair to say, I have been a huge admirer of his work ever since. (I think I even wrote him a “fan email” once?!)
All of his homes are truly magnificent, but some of my favourite Frank Greenwald designed homes are below:
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
