The chic, simple and unadorned style of James Hunter’s client, Juli Betwee, inspired his vision for her 2,000-square-foot Millennium Tower apartment. “Her stylishness brought to mind the clean, modern lines and subtle curves in the furniture Jean-Michel Frank and William Haines designed in the 1930s,” says Hunter, a principal designer at the Wiseman Group. “I knew an updated take on that sensibility would soften the space’s strong geometry.”

Architect James D’Auria and his wife, Jennifer, a real estate agent, lived for some 15 years in a home James designed on a bucolic plot of farmland in Amagansett.

Morning runs have a way of clearing the head and exposing people to new possibilities, which is precisely what happened when Luke Babcock took off on an early a.m. jog one day in 2010. The couple—she an interior designer, he a finance professional—had moved to the Hamptons from New York City in 2003 and had been living in a traditional house nearby. But they were eager to find a more expansive home for themselves and their daughters. They also wanted to create a home they could really call their own—built from the ground up.

Harry Bates has been designing houses on Long Island since the early 1960s. Back then, the choice of materials was limited to “whatever you could get at the lumberyard,” says Bates, explaining the modesty of his early dwellings. But he still found ways to give his houses handsomely proportioned spaces, with crisp details that reflected serious architectural ambitions. His goal was always to do more with less.
