Galerie House of Art and Design

Sag Harbor, Hamptons, United States

Artistic influences.

Immersed in nature, a show house in the Hamptons where art and design combine, creating hybrid settings in which artworks are reimagined and given a new location.


The 24,000 square metre park features site-specific works of art and embraces the house, inspired by the American neo-Victorian style with its brick and wooden facades and grey bow windows. The interior design openly expresses the place’s artistic soul, with vibrant colours, unusual combinations of materials, and geometric and floral patterns embellishing the walls and floors.

A play of contrasts.
Surrounded by greenery, the areas dedicated to relaxation and conviviality integrate creatively with the sculptures that dot the view, a further decorative feature of the show house. Divided into islands, their profile is designed by grey Lapitec slabs used for the outdoor flooring, including the poolside walkway, and the barbecue area worktop. The sintered stone is deliberately used in contrast with the surrounding landscape, whilst in chromatic harmony with the facade, preserving the stylistic unity of the entire design based on balanced contrasts.
Rhythm on the surface.
The 20 and 30 mm thick Cement Grey slabs are in the Arena finish, giving rhythm to the surface’s feel and appearance with its full-bodied grain. The R13 coefficient of friction guarantees the highest level of slip resistance, ideal for the design of bathtubs, swimming pools and adjacent relaxation areas.

Lapitec for outdoor projects.

Its technical properties make it a material that can be used not only in architecture and interiors, but also in outdoor and landscaping projects. Lapitec is non-absorbent with a non-porous surface making it resistant to weathering and temperature changes. Unaffected by chlorine, acids and bases, UV rays and salt spray – characteristics that make it ideal for cladding swimming pools, Lapitec can be used underwater and in prolonged contact with water. Its tactile and aesthetic properties and composition of 100% natural minerals free of chemical additives, resins or petroleum derivatives make Lapitec a green and environmentally friendly material.
