- Hudson Valley, NY
Working closely with the architects, we were able to preserve many of the mature trees growing within close proximity to the structure. We then set the elevation of the living spaces level with the tree canopies so that the house feels very much in the forest. The approach curves through the woodland then expands to invite parking. Walking toward the house, the bright open courtyard comes into view and strikes a contrast with the surroundings. Continuing to the front door you turn and notice, for the first time, the river below.
