When Paul Masi and his colleagues at Bates Masi and Architects in Sag Harbor design a house, they focus first on its key elements. “We try to understand what the essence of it is,” Mr. Masi said. “We know that it’s going to be a pretty house, but it needs to be more than that. It needs to be meaningful to the occupants and also in its relationship to the landscape.”

Erling Hope is a woodworker who has built exquisite cabinets and furniture for many years, and who has also built a specialized career creating liturgical altars and fixtures. About five years ago, he started tinkering with wood from a stand of trees on his property on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, making fascinating little boxes with it.

The old house on Bluff Road in Amagansett was severely abandoned. When I pulled up, on a cool October day, it looked forlorn and haunted. The white paint was peeling and scattered among the overgrown weeds. But there was majestic beauty in the main facade, which sat gently witnessing the ocean’s moods and facing the weather for all those bygone decades. What had this grand old dame seen? What was it like to be alone on Bluff Road in 1915?

If you stopped in at the I.G.A. food markets in Montauk or on North Main Street in East Hampton this week, you may not have noticed anything unusual, but behind the scenes a big change was underway.
