The following is an excerpt from the article "Reviving a Modernist Development in the Hamptons." The article features quotes by Victoria Meyers architect, founding partner of hanrahan Meyers Architects, discussing the current state of the project.
By FRED A. BERNSTEIN:
Mr. Reinhardt is working with some of Mr. Brown’s original stable to redesign their houses. Victoria Meyers of Hanrahan Meyers Architects said she was revising her house design, sometimes using materials that were not available in 2001 and that are more sustainable than what was on the market then. It helps, too, she said, that Mr. Reinhardt understands construction. “Any architect who is used to actually building things is going to like working with this guy,” Ms. Meyers said.
But Mr. Reinhardt doesn’t know when Ms. Meyers’s house — or any of the two dozen unbuilt houses — will be realized. He is looking for new investors who might want to finance two or three houses at a time, “people who see merit to this community,” he said. His goal is to fill out the neighborhood, which right now consists mainly of empty lots, some with signs identifying the architects whose houses were expected to be built there.
