REX reveal final "jewel box" design for future Necklace Residence

by Andrew Manns | 16 Apr 2019

New York-based architecture firm REX have released the last set of renderings for the Necklace Residence – a yet-to-be-realised multi-generational house that has been described as a "jewel box for individual lifestyles".

Set to rise in Long Island, New York, the future 43,500 sq ft (4,041 sq m) living complex will comprise five homes and three shared pavilions: an event space, an entertainment section, and a children's play area.

Leisure facilities and amenities will include a spa, gym, and two swimming pools, as well as a bar, billiard room, cinema, courtyard, and library.

According to REX, the property's living quarters will be divided into a "pinwheel house, checkerboard house, stripe house, barcode house, and dice house" in order to address the "possible needs of families who do not yet exist".

They said: "This palette of homes will give the family options that can accommodate their lifestyle preferences. Should they only make frequent visits to the residence, they can enjoy different architectural and site experiences upon each stay."

The campus will also extend between the beach and the forest, allowing residents to constantly change their surroundings.

"This is a family haven," REX commented, "whose horizontality, reflectivity, and transparency integrate it 'naturally' into the landscape, and exalt the duality of its majestic site."

The project has been in the pipeline for over five years; a delivery date is yet to be announced.
