Talk & Tour:

Living Better in Small Spaces


with Roberta Sandenbergh, AIA
and Jane Dillon, realtor


Hosted by Sara Davison and Sheila Rogers


Every home has “space opportunities”—untapped areas that can be expanded for storage and organizational purposes. In this talk, internationally known architect Roberta Sandenbergh (author of Small Space Living) will show us how to create more space-efficient and attractive areas in our homes, whether a studio apartment, a tiny home, or a larger home that needs more of a cozy feel. Learn from the author’s stories of her own designs for “small-by-choice” homes—for herself and for her clients—in which she made the best possible use of varied living spaces. Local realtor Jane Dillon will speak about the market for small village houses and her recent renovation of one of the most iconic ones. The lecture will be followed by a tour of three recently renovated small East Hampton village homes.


Talk: 9:30-10:30 a.m.,Tours: 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
