Artist David Salle, whose works combine Old Master techniques with Pop imagery and Surrealist humor, owns a four-acre property in East Hampton. Its two antique barns and 1920s chicken coop were combined into a home in the 1970s. Recently he called in architect Michael Haverland and landscape designer Edwina von Gal to transform the property inside and out, adding a studio as a buffer between the road and the house, a pool and poolhouse. Quoted in the December issue of Architectural Digest, Michael Haverland says, "Architecture is not the main feature of this place. The landscape is the star, which is why we kept the buildings off to the side." Edwina Von Gal says, "My objective is always to showcase the trees as beautifully as possible," which in this case include some beautiful, long blooming pink crape myrtles. Want to see more?
