This modern rustic house was commissioned by a young NYC family. Sited on a hill in Dutchess County NY, the house is designed as a series of pavilions that slide past one another to capture the wonderful views across the property. A pool and pergola extend the house’s spirit out into the landscape.
The northern end of the house. The Master wing floats over its stone base on the left, with the double-height Great Room set back on the right.
The sandstone-clad garage serves as a garden wall, coaxing you into one of the two entry doors.

The Kitchen with its Big island and Blue stools. Cedar clads the fridge and wall ovens, with white cabinetry in between. Graphic white-and-black tile backsplash and kick behind the stools.
