A.I.A. Peconic, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects, held its 2016 Daniel J. Rowen Design Awards program at the Southampton Historical Museum on Saturday. A reception celebrating architecture was held in the historic Sayre Barn.
Twenty-seven projects were reviewed by the jurors -- Willy Zambrano of Zambrano Architectural Design, Michael Wetstone of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners, and Frank Fusaro of Handel Architects.
Receiving merit awards were Bates Masi + Architects, an East Hampton firm, for Underhill, a project in Matinecock in Nassau County, Oza/Sabbeth Architecture of Bridgehampton for Sea Barn, a Sagaponack house, CCY Architects, a Colorado firm, for the design of Bay to Beach House in Southampton, Maziar Behrooz Architecture of East Hampton for a proposal for a "museum of stored art" in Chelsea, and LuPe Design for Casa Encantada.
Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects of Bridgehampton won two merit awards, for Mako in Amagansett and for Fairfield, for which the firm declined to give a location. The firm recently won three awards from the American Institute of Architects Long Island Chapter, including one for Mako.
Schappacher White Architecture, a firm with offices in Manhattan and on Shelter Island, received an honor award, as did Roger Ferris & Partners, which has an office in Bridgehampton, for a project known as Green House in that hamlet.
Bill Chaleff, the awards chairman, and Michele Hugo, the president of A.I.A. Peconic, presented the awards.
