A Spare Stage For The Spectacle Of Life

From a Hamptons home profiled in the New York Times: "The Long Island house took more than a year to build, longer than many other houses, they say, because it required precision. Unlike more traditional homes, it has no moldings to cover imperfections. And in several cases, windows extend in horizontal strips the precise width of a room — leaving little margin for construction error. (The technique is a way of ensuring that the walls perpendicular to the windows are bathed in sunlight.) They spent about $1 million for construction. That works out to $250 per square foot, low for the Hamptons."
