We are a full service architecture and interior design office based in New York, Western Massachusetts and working the Hudson Valley, Berkshires and beyond. We aim to elevate the quality of people’s lives through architecture by creating spaces that inspire discovery. Our approach is simultaneously exploratory, technical, and responsive to requirements of the project and sites on which we build. Our process intuitively reveals possibilities latent within every brief over a range of project types and scales including urbanism, buildings, houses, renovations, additions, interior design and furniture. Regardless of scale, we are committed to be curiously engaged and thorough from beginning to end.

West Stockbridge, Massachusetts

Our brief called for multiple spaces for reflection, rejuvenation and spiritual awakening within a small footprint. The site was bordered by a large stone outcropping to the West and a flowing landscape of grass, trees and stones like pillows among the ferns.

We apporached the brief from the outside in, connecting the interiors to the sloping ground with elevated views and sloping vistas. The shape of the roof was intended to follow the tilt in the terrain. The entry is a combined screened room and mudroom. Several rooms were to serve a dual purpose as well: well-ness room/sleeping porch; studio/guest room; office/meditation. The apporach from the long drive leading into the site revealed the building clearly and frontally in order to make a visual connection between its shape and the curvature of the land.
