An Avant-Garde Hamptons Home Bursting with Color Lists for $2.5M



An Avant-Garde Hamptons Home Lists for $2.5M

When imagining Hamptons architecture, a single image comes to most minds; a shingle-style classic, with views of the beach and plenty of space to entertain. The Bioscleave House in East Hampton, which just hit the market asking $2.495 million, is only one of these things. Comprising of two connected houses for a combined 3,400-square-feet of space, there is certainly room to spare, but this quirky residence is otherwise a far cry from Hamptons tradition. 

Alternatively known as the “Lifespan Extending Villa,” the colorful home was designed by avant-garde artists Madeline Gins and Shusaku Arakawa, both of whom recently passed away. Though the property's medicinal alternate name may seem baffling at first, listing agent Jose DosSantos of Brown Harris Stevens has an explanation. The listing reads, “This is a rare work for living life as perpetual exercise—in an environmental juxtaposition for puzzling about living life as art and art as living life inside and out.” Living in a strange and constantly scintillating environment, DosSantos posits, promotes health and longevity.

As for the house itself, it certainly has plenty of surprises in store. The original, front building, designed in 1960 by Carl Koch, was inspired by the Bauhaus and is a largely traditional living space. In this building's 900-square-feet, there is a living room with fireplace, 2 bedrooms, and 1.5 bathrooms. Connected in rear and built in 1999, the Gins and Awakawa-designed addition finds inspiration in Cubist design and is painted 52 different colors. The space, home to an additional two bedrooms and one bathroom, sees Gins and Arakawa’s artistic vision in full-force; cubic volumes, small slopes, and Japanese rammed earth country floors. A property that is also a piece of fine art, the Bioscleave House is equal parts special and unusual.
