Dutchess County Farmhouse
Architect Name: Douglas Larson
Architecture Firm: Larson and Paul Architects
This project took a neighborhood eyesore, and by saving the structure and harvesting much of the building materials and fixtures, reinvented it. The 19th century derelict farmhouse was transformed into a weekend retreat for a New York City family. Post and Beam structure was retained but the infrastructure and finishes were updated. The most defining gesture, the open wall of glass facing north for a mountain view, was made possible by post and beam framing and Marvin Wood Ultimate Sliders and custom In-Sash Polygons.
