Artist Raphael Mazzucco's Montauk home and studio gets the once over from HC&G this month, a decidedly artsy departure for the magazine. Mazzucco speaks of everything in his Fort Pond house as impermanent, an ironic statement for a structure that could be called a study in the opposite. While his paintings come and go, the couch is made of cement stucco, the master bed is a comfy concrete platform, and the walls are painted concrete. Amazingly, the house doesn't look that sparce (more pictures are available in the magazine itself to prove this). Overhauling the home from a pink, 'Miami Vice' era disaster took the help of Thom Fleming, a former model-turned-carpenter who has looked after famed Montauk estate Eothen for years. With Fleming's help, Mazzucco and his family have spent nearly a decade transforming the house using everything from found driftwood and fallen trees to, of course, concrete.
