Built in Sagaponack, the home of Steve Perlbinder was designed by Norman Jaffe in 1972, here is one of my favorite houses in the Hamptons. Unilke many of
his famous contemporaries, to Jaffe, architecture was not conceptural, but had to be connected to the vernacular, to be integrated into its lanscape,
and finally, built of local materials. I tend to think of Jaffe as the William Morris of his time. Jaffe modeled the Perlbinder House after the salt box houses, simple durable structures, made of local timber of pine barrens and built in the North East since the 17th century.
