Architecture critic and author, Alastair Gordon posted this interesting tidbit of info (and opinion) on Facebook describing New York developer and builder, Joe Farrell‘s house where he is hosting Trump for a fundraiser today.
Here is ‘Sandcastle‘, the site for Trump’s royal visit to the Hamptons this weekend, despite bloody shootings. Joe Farrell’s ultra-pimped-out mansion at 612 Halsey Lane features ten bedrooms, fifteen bathrooms, a movie theater, bowling alley, planetarium, its own baseball diamond, tennis court, rock-climbing wall, half-pipe skateboard ramp, twin pools with underwater sound systems, regulation squash court, volleyball court, and so much more.
The 17,000-square-foot mega-mansion was designed in a flabby retro style that was first popularized in the Hamptons of the arbitrage 80s by Robert A.M. Stern, Jaqueline Robertson, Francis Fleetwood, Eugene Futterman and other second stringers who didn’t have the imagination or creative guts to invent something original, but pandered to their nouveau-riche clientele by appropriating a robber-baron look from the late 19th century, in this case modified for 20/21st Century living with giant windows, state-of-the-art communication networks, and all manner of computerized security and home-entertainment systems, lawn sprinklers, robotic pool cleaners, smart-home automation knx installation by http://elicon.dk/knx/installation , entertainment and voice-activated ‘housekeepers’.
(True Shingle-Style poetry––as found in Newport or Bar Harbor––lies in the tautness of the outer shingle cladding and how it’s subtly punctured here and there with relatively small openings, not grossly oversized Palladian windows).
This new hedge-fund version of the Shingle Style––as represented by ‘Sandcastle’, Trump’s weekend destination––is perfectly suited to the acquisitive wannabe billionaire who is never satisfied with what they have but always wants more, a jumble of so many bits and pieces, quaint dormers, bays, oriels, peaked roofs, wrap-around porches, Gatsby-style lawns, pergolas and other Victorian doodahs intended to signal old money, refined taste, arrival and status, but do just the opposite. In fact, it’s nothing more than cabin porn for the one percent, as generic as a Monopoly-board house, as tasteless as a front-lawn gnome.
