We here at Stedila Design are delighted that Tina Brown‘s super buzzy website, The Daily Beast, featured our founding partner John Stedila’s Amagansett beach retreat–a converted fire station–in its “OMG, I Want This House” column. They used Simon Upton’s terrific photography, which originally appeared in an Elle Decor cover story on the house a few years back. Here are a few shots.

John was responsible for most of the design, although I worked on the project too, adding the pavilions and the steel-and-glass doors. We often work collaboratively, constantly leaning over each other’s shoulders, and are doing so currently for a house in Bridgehampton. John’s place has gotten even better with time, and the gardens have matured beautifully. Here are some recent snaps of the exterior.
The house is now surrounded with lush vegetation and colorful flowers.
