With a world that’s constantly changing, one thing has managed to stay the same—the natural beauty, allure, and unique cache of the Hamptons. Whether your family has lived on the desirable South Fork of the East End, or you’re looking to invest/buy for the first time, one thing still rings true—building a home in the Hamptons is one of the best real estate investments you will ever make.

For over half a century, people “in the know” have been turning to, and placing their confidence in, the experts at MKL Construction—when it comes to building custom homes, major renovations and real estate investments in the Hamptons.

MKL, considered a pioneer at the time of its establishment in 1960, has become one of the Hampton’s most highly respected and well-known builders. Included in MKL’s portfolio of private residences and estates, are several iconic landmarks, such as the fashionable 66 Newtown Lane complex, and the East Hampton Movie Theater, on Main Street.

MKL Construction is family-owned and operated by the Kouffman Family, residents of East Hampton since 1959, when MKL’s founder, Maurice H. Kouffman, first moved here. Appreciating the inherent interplay of architecture, along with a passion for building, would lead MKL to build some of the most luxurious homes in the Hamptons.

In 1977, Philip D. Kouffman, MKL’s V.P. & CEO, joined forces with his father, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company. A perfect team, with the combined knowledge of building and all things related to real estate (both are licensed brokers), Phil was able to spearhead the growth and expansion of the company’s high-end residential construction, securing the solid and enviable position MKL holds today.

Phil’s natural ease makes the enduring relationships he has with his clients, effortless- these relationships have extended to building for many of his client’s children, and now, for their children’s children. True to their motto, which they take great pride in: “We Build More Than Homes. We Build Relationships”. In fact, 99% of their projects come from client referrals. To view some of the wonderful things people are saying about MKL, you can go to their website:

MKL’s clients take great comfort in Phil’s ability to walk them through the building process step-by-step, foreseeing any issues before they arise. MKL’s commitment to excellence, professional team, state-of-the-art technology and monitoring systems, enable the organization to keep the client-architect-builder team fully informed throughout the project, so all parties are in the loop, and on the same page.
