Southampton Beach House by Alexander Gorlin Architects

AD100: Alexander Gorlin

We do Modern architecture with a warm heart,” says Alexander Gorlin, “open, airy and light, with clean lines and natural materials.” His is an approach that’s been singled out by discerning clients from New York to Nairobi, including by other leading architects. Before Daniel Libeskind could settle into the Manhattan loft he’d acquired after being chosen as the architect of the new World Trade Center, he first needed the apartment to be reimagined to fit the needs of his family. Of all the architects in New York, Gorlin got the call. A house in Morocco for a sheik is now receiving his focus, as is a mountaintop residence on Ibiza with “a spectacular 360-degree view.” Despite the economic downturn, he remains busy. “Our work has never been based on expensive materials,” Gorlin points out, “but on forms and spaces that solve the problem of the house in an efficient manner.”
