Vision Long Island recently awarded the Beechwood Organization, one of the biggest builders in New York State, with its 2021 Smart Growth Award for Historic Preservation for its work at The Latch Southampton Village, Beechwood’s new townhouse community off Hill Street in the village.
As part of the redevelopment of the site, the exteriors of two turn-of-the-20th-century structures — the main Latch building and the adjacent Terry Cottage — designed by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White were preserved.
Guided by architects James McMullan of Fleetwood & McMullan and Jason Poremba of Jason Thomas Architect, in consultation with Village of Southampton historian Zach Studenroth, the structures of the Federal Revival period, cedar shingled and painted white with Dutch Colonial touches, were returned to their original splendor.
“We thank Vision Long Island for the honor and the team who worked with us to bring forward the best of the past for future generations to enjoy this beautiful property,” said Steven Dubb, the principal of the Beechwood Organization.
