Inventive Minimalism – Roger Ferris celebrates his new book at The Bridge
Architecture in the Hamptons is a voyeur’s pleasure. Architect Roger Ferris known both for his inventive and groundbreaking modern design of the famed Bridge Golf Club Clubhouse and Topping Rose House renovation gives us a chance to peek inside his buildings in his new book.
In celebration of, Inventive Minimalism: The Architecture of Roger Ferris + Partners, Roger Ferris held a special gathering at The Bridge. You never say no if you have an invitation to this private club with its stunning views and amazing art collection.
The design of the clubhouse at The Bridge and its resulting forms and orientations are a direct outgrowth of Roger’s sustainable design intentions. Inventive Minimalism showcases simple geometric forms and sustained explorations of layering planes to bound space and permit light, and the clubhouse at The Bridge certainly exemplifies these design techniques.
In the age of the McMansion and some seriously soulless shingle styles, his designs breathe new life into less is more. Peering through the pages you will feel an overwhelming desire to rid yourself of every inch of clutter and wish your mind could be as clear and linear as the spaces he designs.
Notable figures in the design world including Mohsen Mostafavi, Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, attended the event in support of Roger’s book. Robert Wilson, Robert Rubin, Anne Chaisson, Mark & Marissa Borghi, and Roger & Wendy Ferris were also present for the celebration. Guests enjoyed dramatic sunset views overlooking the Peconic Bay and the exclusive golf course at The Bridge.
