Awards For Makoid

At the American Institute of Architects Long Island Chapter’s annual Archi Awards

Blaze Makoid Architecture of Bridgehampton took home two awards at the American Institute of Architects Long Island Chapter’s annual Archi Awards last Thursday — one for a house in East Hampton and another for a Truckee, Calif., design.

The East Hampton house, which the firm calls Old Orchard, began as a 10,000-square-foot modern spec house before new owners brought Blaze Makoid Architecture on board. The firm completely redid the house.

The California house, on a lot within a 2,200-acre ski and golf club called Martis Camp, is a 6,000-square-foot structure on steeply sloping, wooded terrain. “The placement and footprint of the house preserve the natural site features through minimal grading and tree removal,” the firm said. “Black-stained cedar siding allows for the house to blend with the landscape during the summer and fall, and pose as a dramatic counterpoint to the snow cover through the winter months.”
