Located in New York, this newly constructed home was designed to replace an existing weekend retreat within the same site. The goal for the new house was to blend with the surrounding landscape while amplifying the Owner’s visual and auditory experience of the environment from interior spaces.
The “vertical” window in the living room draws one’s eye to a rock outcropping across a stream. The “horizontal” window focuses one’s view down through the lawn and towards the natural wetlands. The all-cedar screened porch opens towards the same rock outcropping and is cantilevered over the stream, truly well suited for daydreaming.
This project won an award from the AIA Westchester Hudson Valley.
This house is located across the Hudson River in suburban New Jersey far from the bustle of Manhattan. Classic lines and a stucco exterior enclose a glamorous interior, reminiscent of the 1930s in warm beiges and silvery grays, that showcases an extensive Latin-American art collection.
The client was intent on building a house with a distinctly Asian flavor, styled after houses he’d seen in Thailand and Japan.
The house is built on wood pilings and the exterior is finished in mahogany siding, chosen for its durability in the salty air and harsh elements, and of couse, it recalls the Thai houses the client admired.
